    Extra partitions


    In ADMIN TOOLS|COMPUTER MGMT|DISK MGMT the following are listed...

    C: 952 GB
    "healthy recovery partition" 450 MB (the box is shaded)

    "healthy recovery partition" 449 MB
    D: 909 GB

    How can I get rid of the recovery partitions (or at least one, if the other is required) and reclaim the unused space for C: ?

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Extra Drives and Partitions

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you want to know about what will happen to the files and programs installed on your computer, after you upgrade to Windows 10.

    I would like to inform you that the files and programs installed on your computer will not get effected, when you upgrade to Windows 10. However to be on safer side, I suggest you to take backup of your data before upgrading to
    Windows 10.

    Note: If you perform Clean installation on your computer to upgrade to Windows 10, all the data on your hard drive shall be lost.

    I suggest you to refer the Windows 10 Microsoft help, to know more about Windows 10.

  3. Extra Drives and Partitions

    Upgrading to windows 10

    I have a C drive with the Operating System, Programs and some other normal file folders both personal and system.

    I also have a D drive that is partitioned into 8 other logical drives that are dedicated to topical data storage. Such as Finance, Family, Home, Work etc

    I also have a Network drive on the router that is used as backup.

    Is it expected that this drive structure will migrate successfully with the Windows 10 upgrade or do I need to do something extraordinary?

    Many thanks. The issue has been resolved with a similar tool, EaseUS partition master (free HOME version).
