    Are you saying your recovery partition has been assigned a drive letter.

    If so, you could just try removing drive letter in disk management?

    Thanks for replying.
    I'm using winpe to deploy my computers but i need to hide my recovery partition to not be seen in Windows.
    I know how to remove drive letter in Windows using diskpart, but i need to hide in winpe after applying the image.
    Thanks

    Assuming your recovery partition is 1, using diskpart
    Code:
    select disk 0
    select partition 1
    remove
    set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac
    gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001
    Deploy Windows RE

    Thank you i will try it out.

    It will not delete the partition.

    remove removes any assigned drive letter, assign letter=x assigns drive letter x to the currently selected partition.

    You don't normally need to assign a drive letter to make a backup though (depending how you are doing it).

    I'm using dism to backup and restore.

    I just want to thank you.
    the gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001 works flawless.
    Thanks
