    How to put back the Windows 10 Pro - Recovery partition ?


    Hello everyone,

    I have an Asus Z590 motherboard and tried to install the Intel RST Premium driver with Intel Optane system accelerator (RAID), but then I went back to the standard AHCI controller.

    However by making this change, a "D" drive appeared to me which is supposed to be the Windows 10 Recovery partition that was previously hidden.

    Trying to hide the drive that appeared to me "D", that is the Recovery drive, now I have this drive but it is empty (without any files inside it), someone can tell me how to put the partition back in place recovery with all the necessary files?

    I also connected to the system an HP Officejet Pro 6830 multifunction printer which has an integrated usb port.

    Before, in system management, together with hard disks, the unit of the printer USB port appeared fixed to me, while now the unit appears to me ONLY if I insert a key into the printer's USB port and this is not good...

    Someone help me to re-install the Windows 10 Recovery partition with all the necessary files inside and to make the USB port of the printer appear fixed to me together with the hard disk drives in the devices and drives panel ?

    Thanks to those who have the patience and the competence to help me...

    The Recovery partition is normally hidden and since it's hidden, it appears to be empty but in reality it's not. Open the Admin command prompt and type:
    reagentc /info
    If it shows Enabled then it's not empty. If it shows Disabled then type: reagentc /enable. If succeeded then you're OK.
    If not, post a screenshot of your Disk Management then we'll go from there.
    Here's what my Recovery Partition looks like: Disk Management shows 100% free space
    But from the Command Windows, it shows: Enabled

    Hi,

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>reagentc /info

    Informazioni di configurazione per Ambiente ripristino Windowse la reimpostazione del sistema:

    Percorso Ambiente ripristino Windows:

    OK. The Recovery partition shows the wrong Partition Type: EBD0A0A2-B9E5-4433-87C0-68B6B72699C7 . This is for basic data partition type.
    For Recovery partition type, It should be:
    Type: de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac
    We'll need to fix that first. From Admin command, type:
    diskpart
    select disk 1
    select part 1
    set id=DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC override
    exit

    Make sure the ID is correctly set. You can copy and paste into the Command.

    OK, next we'll need to set the folder option to show hidden file then navigate to: C:\Windows\System32\Recovery
    There's should be 2 files namely: WinRe.wim and ReAgent.xml
    Are they there ???

    I did not see WinRe.wim, You have 2 .xml files but not WinRe.wim
    Exactly:

    NO WinRe.wim

    Do you have Windows Installation Disk ? We'll need to get 2 files from the installation disk. The 2 .xml files are no longer good.
