Re: Size of drives
The recovery partition , in every case I know, is designated as the "D"
drive - seems like a foul-up in your case - PaulB's advice is applicable.
Most computers now "arrive" with a restore partition - presence verified by
the "Hit F11 key to restore(or something similiar)".. It is usually the last
resort to "fix" a crash - however it returns the computer to the original
state when new.
Information should be provided with your documentation on, if you prefer, to
copy the restore partition to removeable media and deleting the partition.
Deleting the partition via Explorer may not be possible and would not remove
the MBR modification (Hit F11....).
