    And Why my push-button reset has 15GB capacity? Is that normal?? I did some search it might be around 4GB.
    1/ Can I delete it? or how can I shrink it.
    2/ I use the EaseUS to check each drive, it shows the install.wim can merge to C drive, can I do that?
    3/ If I do this way and reset to fty setting again. Will the install.wim create from fty setting itself?
    Thanks for helping.

    You will not be able to extend if unallocated space is on the left with the Windows Disk Management utility.

    Thanks. I found it hard to shrink the system drive more than half of its size on disk management tool.
    Let said I want C Drive to be 350GB in my 1TB storage. I tried to use miniTool to make partition and the the same problem occurred again!(Could Not Find Recovery Environment)
    I found the related post from other forum about the same problem.
    Why Can't I Reduce Partition Size of C for more than 455GB? - Laptops - Windows 8
    and this

    I do not know what's the other to make partition.
    Any related post can help here? Thanks for helping.

    Thanks for advice, You are legend!
    I'm in doubt if I use this tool, would the recovery drives turn to OEM and the issue of "Could Not find Recovery Environment" again?
    Maybe it is my bloody Acer laptop problem.

    I using the solution from the WordPress site, it works fine, but somehow when I check the network diagnose, it said I have connectivity issue with internet.
    Any ideas?? Maybe I can find in other post?

    @Buckethead:

    I have a Lenovo G580 laptop that came with Windows 8 preinstalled.

    If i use EaseUS Partition Master 10.5.

    The ID for the recovery partitions type are incorrectly set to OEM and I get the error message: "Could not find the recovery environment".

    If i use AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.6.

    Then everything is OK and Refresh/Reset work (see screenshots below).
