    Recovery Partition always mounted


    Windows 1909

    I converted my main boot drive to GPT (I have no idea if this is relevant, but mention it for completeness).

    Since doing so the "Recovery Partition" is always mounted as Drive G.

    I have not assigned a disk letter to it in Disk Management and it won't let me assign G to it so I can them remove it.

    What's the incantation to make Windows not mount the partition?

    I launched Partition Wizard and it offered me the option to change the disk letter on that partition, which I did and set it to Remove the disk letter - job done.
