Windows 10: Recovery Partition question

    Recovery Partition question


    I have space for the recovery partition but it says the partition is empty. I was trying to make a recovery usb and it would say couldn't create one. I went under computer management and the space is accolated but says it has 100% free space, so how come when I did the clean install of windows 10 it didn't put recovery files on it and how can I get those files back?

    The Recovery partition is not empty, all files in this partition are hidden and disk management gives false info. You can install MiniTool Partition Wizard , run then right click on the partition to explore it.
    Post a screen shot of disk management so we can see how all partitions were organized.

    Unless there is something more than Windows you can just download win10 DVD and use that to get data off depends on model of of in most cases to use it you press a key on boot to do a reset

    Your disk partitions look fine. Open admin command and type: reagentc /info and make sure it is enabled
    then try Control Panel->Recovery
