Multiple Recovery Empty Partitions

Hello and happy new year.

I'm running win 8.1 x64 on a new Samsung laptop.
Recently i noticied that in Disk Managment there are multiple recovery partitions that are stated as 100% free (they are not visible when opening My Computer). (I recently did a system recovery from recovery utility, don't know if it's relevant to my "problem").
Is it expected to have these partitions? And if yes, why they seem to be 100% free?
I'm attaching a snapshot.

Thank you in advance disk man.PNG

Recovery Partitions are OK, the partitions will show HIDDEN in DM.

You also installed the Windows 8.1 update two times.

The partitions will show HIDDEN in DM & 100% free, but are full of boot files & Repair tool files.


Should i erase any of them??
If you do your system will NOT BOOT, than you will need to reinstall.
