    IF you move the Recovery Partition , you will need to re-register it's location with Windows 10 with reagentc again

    I believe MiniTool will update the partition data to reflect that. Last step of "Apply".

    I am sorry but this is incorrect. The Recovery environment is based on the order of the partition #. If you move the Recovery Partition, your PC still boot but the Recovery Environment will be broken. You must use RecAgentc to point it to the new partition # (Counting from left to right), partition wizard does not update this info.

    NO it will boot no problem , you just can't use Recovery Modes like Reset this PC etc until you fix it with Reagentc. see my post above on how to.

    Your D:\ was an OEM Recovery Partition not a Windows Recovery Partition , so it won't effect you unless you move the Windows Recovery partition , which you need to do if you want to Merge the Old D: space back into C: and also get the space back from the old un-used Windows Recovery partitions

    you should remove all the un-needed partitions 1st though..... or your partition no# maybe wrong and you will need to do it again.

    WOW!!! I'm really not computer literate enough to even follow your instructions. I just followed topgun's instructions to get rid of the Win. 8 on D drive, and it now 17. dome GB unaffiliated. Now I don't know what I will do if I have to do a recovery on this computer.

    What am I going to need to do, if I would need to do a recovery, since my D drive is no longer there and all I have is 17. some GB that is unaffiliated. It's still in the same position, but with no name that it's a recovery drive. Am I up the creek? I made a recovery point after I downloaded the Anniversary Update a day or 2 ago. Can I use that to recover the drive D?
