  1. Resizing Partition after cloning but healthy recovery partition is in the way.


    Hi all. I'm looking all over and I can't get an answer on this:


    I cloned my OS drive on my SSD to an M.2 drive. The SSD was 500gb. My M.2 drive is 1tb.


    I now have almost 500gb of unallocated space. The problem is this: There is my C drive, a 'recovery partition', and then the unallocated space. Think 1, 2, and 3. I need to move the recovery partition so that I can extend the C drive partition.


    1=My C drive 2=the recovery partition 3=the unallocated space. In disk management, the order of partitions/volumes is 1,2,3. What is 123 needs to be 132 in order for me to resize partition 1, which means I have to move the recovery partition. If I move the recovery partition to the end, making the 123 volumes into 132, will it crash my operating system? Will it crash my operating system if I move the recovery partition to the end of the drive in disk management? I am sorry for the redundant explanation, but people don't seem to understand my question and I'm not sure why. I know how to stretch partitions already. I also understand that a partition that is being stretched needs to have unallocated space adjacent to it. My question is about moving a partition so that I have unallocated space next to the partition I want to resize. Will doing so crash my system?

    :)

  2. Resize partition C

    In order to extend C and recover space from D, you will need to delete the 866 MB Healthy Recovery Partition and the Storage D:\ partitions.

    There appears to be data on the D:\ partition.

    I recommend you backup any important data on that partition before deleting it. After deleting the partitions, you will be able to extend C:\

    Steps:

    Right click the ‘Healthy (Recovery Paritition) and the
    Storage (DResizing Partition after cloning but healthy recovery partition is in the way. :)
    partitions in Disk Management, on the contextual menu, click the ‘Delete Volume’ option. Click ‘Yes’ when the warning dialog appears.

    The Volume you deleted will now appear as ‘Free space’, you will also notice that the disk icon no longer appears in the list of volumes.

    Right click the Free space partition, and click Delete, click Yes on the Disk Management warning that appears.

    The volume will now appear as Unallocated. Our next step is to merge back that unallocated free space with the system partition
    (CResizing Partition after cloning but healthy recovery partition is in the way. :). Right click the System volume then click the ‘Extend Volume’ option on the contextual menu, click ‘Yes’ when the warning appears.

    A wizard will now begin that will guide through the steps to merge back the unallocated space with your system partition.

    The wizard provides a simple procedure to merge back the unallocated space with the system drive. Once you have selected the space, click Next, at the end of the wizard, you will see the amount allocated.

    Resizing Partition after cloning but healthy recovery partition is in the way.

    Windows 10 & Too many Recovery partitions

    Disk Management displays:

    • 300 MB Healthy (EFI System partition)
    • 900 MB Healthy (Recovery partition)
    • OS (CResizing Partition after cloning but healthy recovery partition is in the way. :) 184,97 GB Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash, Primary partition)
    • 912 MB Healthy (Recovery partition)
    • 450 MB Healthy (Recovery partition)
    • DATA (DResizing Partition after cloning but healthy recovery partition is in the way. :) 258,15 GB Healthy (Primary partition)
    • 20,01 GB Healthy (Recovery partition)
    It concerns an ASUS N750JV laptop that came with Windows 8 Home pre-installed, then upgraded to Windows 8.1. and finally to Windows 10.

    One could assume that each Windows version created its own Recovery partition, so that could explain 3 Recovery partitions.

    Usually I change the name of partition C: from OS (or often LOCAL) to for example Win 10 pr 64-bit, especially with it concern a dual or multi-boot computer.
