    I think I have an extra partition.
    Can I remove it?
    Attachment 54242

    The 500MB is the recovery partition from my Win 10 UPGRADE install, BUT now it's marked as a primary partition.
    Because I reinstalled Win 10 through Windows, not clean install, and got the 450MB partition which is marked Recovery Partition.

    I'm thinking I can delete the 500MB partition?

    Thanks for your advice
    You should confirm which is your active Recovery Partition by executing "reagentc /info" from an elevated command prompt (admin). The partition it names as your WinRE partition is the keeper. You can delete or ignore the other.

    Note - "keeper" is the term I use to identify the active WinRE partition that I assume you do want to keep. If you delete that one, you won't have access to Windows Recovery Environment tools.

    I certainly would have a full disk image on external media captured before doing any partition modifications.

    Maybe, but the OP specs don't show if it's a SSD or HD.

    Also there is this statement in post #1, and could make a difference, on what was done and happened.
    He said it clearly in post #2 the partition for OP (Over Provisioning). And he used Samsung Magician to set up that feature.
