    No control over recovery partitions.


    I need to re-arrange partitions and one recovery partitions is blocking me. I though a factory reset would take everything back to place but it didn't.

    TY

    Don''t get me wrong I just don't see the need of a Screenshot but here is the structure.

    400 MB : 100 MB : 34.24 GB : 350 MB : 13.0 GB : 10.0 GB
    Recovery : EFI : Winows : Recovery : Unnallloated : Recovery

    I want to chnge it to :

    40.0 GB : 20.0 GGB
    Windows : Unallocated

    So I think I have to Format entirely and leave 20 GB unallocated ( at the end ) and perform a new installation there.

    Wow you need a Screenshot ?

    I thought you needed information.

    If you care enough you can instead refer me to documentation but I don't actually need that hep.

    I will just go to Microsoft.com and deal with this with real useful-official info. I'm off this forum.

    "a picture is worth a thousand words"

    Anyway, I really don't recommend removing Recovery and EFI partitions, but if you really know what are you doing and you really need to do it, you can't do it from windows or windows setup. you'll need a partition tool to do it.

    You may also try this:
    Can't delete extra "Healthy (Recovery Partition)"s and "Healthy (EFI System Partition)"

    @BDepth: FYI, It is a common practice to ask for a screenshot of disk management when trying to assist in that area. Moreover, theog is the best partition expert we have in this forum IMHO. I just don't understand your resistance to comply with a simple request like that. However, do as you will and best of luck in getting your issue resolved.
