    SSD has a large recovery partitio and I want to remove it.


    So I put in a SSD into my computer. When I made a copy of my system on to it for some reason it gave it a 213.99GB recovery partition which is half of the drive. I guess my question is can I delete it and put that space to use, since I have made a recovery image on an external hard drive?management.docx

    The recovery partition likely contains your Windows 10 Recovery Environment (WinRE). I would shrink it to 500MB and then add the free space to C: Drive.

    See the thing is that it doesn't give me the option to shrink the volume. Why would that be?

    Because you are not using MiniTool Partition Wizard Free:
