I would bet that 18GB partition has your - windowsRE (Recovery Tools) - Factory Recovery Image - System Reserve and Boot Files..

right click start flag, open command prompt admin, type> reagentc /info

you will see a listing for windowsRE location and one for image - most likely both are on partition 1

View attachment 55998

If you want to see what is there> from command prompt
type> disk[art
type> select disk 0
type> list partition
type> select partition 1
type> assign letter=s

what is in that temp folder?

and what is in the recovery folder?

Windows Recovery is disabled..

You do not have a registered winre or a registered recovery image

Also now that you can see and have a drive letter assigned - once you reboot it may lose that drive letter because of the partition ID

ok, you have no recovery image.. that partition only needs to be 450MB

you can delete the temp folder as it is just old logs.

at command prompt(admin) type> reagentc /enable

and then post a shot of > reagentc /info

although you may need to reboot to take affect

If your RE info did not change the windowsRE location to to globalroot yada yada

type> C:\Windows\System32\Reagentc /Setreimage /Path F:\Recovery\WindowsRE /Target C:\Windows

That command will register the windows recovery tools..

I also assume you have a lot of free space in that partition - you can then use a program "EaseUS Partition Master"

to resize partition 1 down to 450MB and then resize partition 2 to fill the new unused space created by resizing partition 1

I noticed you inquired about windows media and doing a clean install - that is another option to fix this issue - but will wipe all your hard drive data

do you still have that partition visable? if not re-assign the letter F and run that command

first type> reagentc /enable

I did not see that you typed that command

I just noticed.. You did..

You have no recovery tools..

That is just system (boot) partition and it only needs to be 100MB

If it where me - I would opt for the last resort.. and get a good setup..

Install windows, install MFG drivers - create a custom refresh image

Install my programs - create another custom refresh image.

save both custom images to a USB in different folders - and use those Images (1 clean and 1 loaded) as recovery images.

and then you won't have this much of an issue again..

Sounds like a good plan...and i may just do that. Laptop has been booting slower lately. Thanks for your time so far.
Did I get the results you expected, i may have got the screen shots out of order. Do you think i could shrink that partition, and add to my c drive?

Do I need to concern myself with that command....I get windows "The specified path was not found".

no you just do not have an on disk recovery option - many windows version didn't.. You will use the windows 8.1 setup media instead..

the partition program will not allow you shrink the partition to small anyway..

Have you pulled the properties of that partition?

used space and free space
