    Address - just meant which drive it was referring to as the location for the backup
    Since there's only one HD in your PC. You would need to buy an external HD to save the backup.

    Of course you can free up some space and make a backup to it but what good does it do if your HD get defected then you won't be able to restore.

    I know, I'm familiair with GPT format Also with MBR but a bit less than with GPT.

    I just find it a bit odd that with an in-place upgrade I did on my laptop it created a 452MB recovery partition, not a problem though but that is why I 'randomly' said 500MB recovery partition.
    You are talking about in place upgrade, I am talking about fresh install. With in place upgrade, windows will shrink the C drive to ~450 GB, plus or minus couple of GB's to get the partition aligned correctly.
