How to delete the Recovery Partition in Windows 10?



As an IT administrator, you may want to delete the recovery partition in Windows 10 at some point. This article will explain how to do this safely, without affecting your system or data.

The first step is to identify the recovery partition. To do this, open the disk management utility in Windows 10 by pressing the Windows key + R and typing in “diskmgmt.msc”. This will bring up a window that shows all of the storage drives connected to your computer. Look for a partition that is labeled “Recovery” and take note of its drive letter.

Once you have the drive letter of the recovery partition, you can delete it. However, it is important to back up any important data that may be stored on the partition before deleting it. To delete the partition, right-click on it and select “Delete Volume”. This will remove the partition, but will not delete the data stored on it.

If you want to completely delete the data stored on the recovery partition, you will need to use a third-party tool. There are a variety of tools available that can securely erase data from a hard drive, and they are all relatively easy to use. Once you have chosen a tool, install it and then follow the instructions to securely erase the data on the recovery partition.

Once the data has been securely erased, you can delete the recovery partition. To do this, right-click on the partition and select “Delete Volume”. This will remove the partition and all of the data stored on it.

That’s all there is to it. Deleting the recovery partition in Windows 10 is a fairly straightforward process, but it is important to back up any important data first. Once the partition has been deleted, you can then use a third-party tool to securely erase any data that may have been stored on the partition. After that, you can safely delete the partition without any risk to your system or data.
