    It is not. The recovery partition was on disk 0 and I deleted it.
    After some brief research I think it's a ssd cache that works with Intel® Rapid Start Technology.

    How do I do that ? I have been trying to make changes to my WIn 8.1 laptop, but it seems some settings are lacking I find in the tutorials.

    I found Classic Shell and I now go directly to Desktop, which I prefer.

    you can do "many" things that you think.. and do NOT need classic shell..

    for example. this is just right clicking on your taskbar and select properties. look what comes up.. this is built-in to windows 8.1

Windows 8 is a few steps backwards
Windows 7 is great. Windows 8 is an appalling OS with virtually no thought given to the millions of desktop PC users. When support for W7 expires I will be buying a Mac.
