    Delete Recovery Partition?

    I just put a new blank SSD in a Dell laptop.
    I guess OEM's stopped putting product keys on computers - to load windows 10 on it, I had to run the dell recovery software, which loaded Windows7 (with Dell's OEM settings). After that I ran an in place upgrade to Windows 10.
    The problem is that there's a 14GB 'RECOVERY' partition that I can't remove - I think this is Dell's original recovery partition.
    I plan on creating a system image before I load software on the PC, but I want to get rid of the ancillary recovery partition first so I don't waste space backing up the extra data.

    Re: Delete Recovery Partition?

    By some means my recovery partition had been deleted & I couldn't backup my data on my computer. I badly needed a good partition recovery tool. I was lucky to find out this tool https://www.pandorarecovery.com/partition-recovery.html through the forum . The price was a bit high though the data I lost were of utter importance.

    While HP does not recommend it, you can remove the recovery partition by performing the following actions. During the removal process, a reminder displays if Recovery disks have not been created. ... When prompted to verify that you want to delete the partition, select the Yes option, and click Next.
