    Recovery Partition Upgraded when Upgrading from Win7? Or just delete.


    Two questions:

    1. My Lenovo T520 had some type of recovery partition on Windows 7 pro when I bought it as a refurbished from IBM. Not original OEM. Never had need to use it. When Windows 7 is upgraded to Windows 10, does the recovery partition also get upgraded?

    2. If I make a recovery USB boot stick or CD/DVD using AOMEI or perhaps Windows 10, is there any reason to not delete the recovery partition? Would save me about 10Gb on 256Gb Win10 drive and 256Gb Win 7 partition on second drive.

    :)

    Help, I deleted a partition, and can't seem to "extend" the other partition

    Ok, here's how it happened.

    I had 2 partition. XP and Win7 x86.

    I shrank the Win7 x86 partition and created a new partition (Win7 X64)

    I then deleted Win7 x86 partition.

    edit: what warup suggested did the trick. It took 20+ minutes for that software to do it, but hey it worked.. Thanks

    Recovery Partition Upgraded when Upgrading from Win7? Or just delete.

    When Windows is upgraded additional recovery partitions can be created where computers may have multiple recovery partitions.
    Typical default recovery partitions are < 1 GB.
    Computers can have all recovery partitions manually deleted.

    Alternatively you can make your own custom recovery partition:

    Factory recovery - Create a Custom Recovery Partition

    If you use software to make free backup images they can be saved to another partition on the same drive, an external drive, or to the cloud:
