    It is showing nothing for 'Windows RE location:', I would have expected it to show something like this....

    Windows RE location:       \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition3\Recovery\WindowsRE

    It may mean the active recovery partition was the third one on the other disk.
    Yeah, I reran the command in CMD and for some reason it said it was enabled and in Disk 0 partition 2. So I went into Partition Wizard and deleted Disk 0 (Disk 1 like u said) Partition 3. I've restarted the PC a couple times, but now it's saying Windows RE is disabled. Maybe this is nothing to worry about? Or is there something wrong. Either way thanks a lot for the help

    You can live without a recovery partition, it's only used for repairs. Make a Recovery Drive USB and you can boot from that if you need to - it has all the same tools as a recovery partition.

    Create Recovery Drive in Windows 10

    I did misread disk management as 9% used instead of 9% free . I would not worry about the now missing recovery environment. Like @Bree stated, all those functions are available from a bootable Windows 10 recovery/installation drive anyway, and the next major upgrade to Windows 10 in the Spring will probably recreate the recovery partition.
