    Can I Delete These 2 Recovery Partitions?


    I upgraded to 1903 about 2 weeks ago (6/17) and I've notice that I now have two recovery partitions.

    Neither of them is enabled.

    There is a Recovery folder on "C" but its empty.

    One of the recovery partitions was created on the day of the upgrade and appears to be well formed.

    While I realize that I really don't need either of them because I keep updated Macrium images, as a learning experience how would I go about enabling the recovery environment on Partition 3?

    :)

    Will deleting the factory partition render the recovery disk useless?

    More than likely it is of no use NOW . The recovery disk is nothing more than drivers and some BS . You will not get the OS and recovering from a recovery disk only works if the drive partition is fine and has been untouched by any one .
    The best thing to do is delete all the partitions and just install windows on the HDD make your own recovery disk and your done not to mention you get all that drive space back .

    How To: Create recovery partition.

    it worked when i copied all the files of the disk to the recovery partition i created, but i had to use WinPE tab to add the entry.

    Type: WIM Image (Ramdisk)
    Name: Recovery
    Path: Z:\Sources\boot.wim
    and hit Add Entry
    I tried it in VirtualBox and it worked.
    At first, it would add a second "Windows 7" entry to the list, but when the installation is finished, the old one is deleted. (I formatted only C: partition)
