    i assume an upgrade created a 3rd partition for recovery purposes
    and a full clean install does not?

    Your instalation is perfect. All Eufi installs of Windows 10 create four partitions (one called MSR is hidden).

    The new recovery partition just contains the software to rebuild Windows 10 from winsnxs compressed folders on C drive. There is no longer a 5GB+ recovery partition with a copy of all the OS files.

    You have nothing to worry about. Your install is fine.
