    Because it stupidly doesn't delete the one from your previous version,

    Sorry but not rude, just stating that you are beating a dead horse and you are sweating over something that is a nothing. This has been this way since Microsoft started to change how Windows 8 going into 10 would use partitioning to keep the OS safe from user habits.

    It can indeed be deleted if one does not expect to use system restore back to when it was created.

    The 450mb next to the efi or Fat32 partition at the beginning of the disk I'd leave that one alone.
    It may have boot files on it too.
    I personally use free minitool to do this type of thing

    I would not delete it, since we have all seen Windows 10 go tit's up when it gets upset over something not being there. It is not even a blip in such a small sized partition.

    I am trying to figure out what "reagentc /info" is telling me.

    Me too,...didn't understand it which is why I had to write that down and check here to see which was my active partition. Where yours says \Partition 1\,.. mine says Partition 4, so I assumed that partition 4 is the active one.

    Since mine only has one (1), it is easy to tell. But, I have had some installs where there were 2, like yours and this would then tell which was active. Don't recall how I eliminated it, but like others have said, it is such a small amount of HD space, but one has to wonder what happened to make more than one. I am not satisfied just to let it do that for some unknown reason. YMMV

    I'm thinking it's when I upgraded from Anniversary 1607 to Creators 1703. It created another Windows.old folder and did it create this second 450Mb Recovery Partition?

    I now want to upgrade from 1703 to the Fall Creators 1709 using my bootable Flash with ISO created by MCT but will it produce another 450Mb recovering partition so that I end up with three altogether?

    This is why I want to learn how to delete these things if they grow in number each time I upgrade. After all, Microsoft are talking about different version upgrades every six months.

    This is why I deleted all of these while in The Insiders Program sometimes getting 3 build a week
