    Insert an 8GB usb stick
    Go into control panel - recovery - create a recovery drive
    when the recovery drive is finished
    There will be an option to delete the recovery partition...

    Save the USB or the files on the USB - as this is the factory recovery

    the first two partitions have to stay - after removing the recovery partition
    You can expand C:\ to fill the rest of the disk space

    Create the recovery USB
    Then copy all the files on the recovery usb - into a recovery folder in your drop box..

    then if you ever need to do a factory recovery - just copy from dropbox folder to usb
