How to expand Recovery console
My Vista recovery drive is almost completely full. I reduced the size of the
primary partition and now there's unused space. I can't see how to get the
Recovery drive expanded. Can anyone help?

Re: How to expand Recovery console
What recovery drive is this? Is it one you created yourself purposely for
manually backing up your system or is it a recovery partition put there by
the pc manufacturer to hold the recovery copy of Vista? If the partition was
created by the manufacturer, then leave well alone.
