    I don't keep recovery partitions on my computers. Everything available in the recovery partition is also available by booting from a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive...
    Strongly agree and highly recommended. Just create a recovery USB after fresh install or major upgrades and put it on cloud drive.
    I don't like Plug-and-Play style of Windows 10 installation, it keeps administrators away from control and customization. Why M$ can't make it simple and clear like anaconda or calamares installers in some Linux distros?!

And...like you say...if my system gets messed up enough to actually require the recovery partition, I'm going to restore a backup image or do a clean install anyway.
    This is particularly true on a 32GB tablet where 0.5GB is significant by comparison.

    It may have only been temporary but you were running some of the commands from a non-admin prompt window..

    The bootrec /Rebuildbcd can also reset some of those values, just not sure what setting some of the Reagentc entries to "0" actually did.

    Both Winre.wim and Reagent.xml are under: C:\Windows\System32\Recovery
    If contains all 0's. ReAgentc will search for the Recovery Partition identified by ID type (DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC) and move WinRe.wim there then update the xml file to contain the offset, its GUID and also set an entry in the BCD.

    Code:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
    
    <WindowsRE version="2.0">
      <WinreBCD id="{b150d609-3dff-11e8-bb6b-002683327ad9}"/>
      <WinreLocation path="\Recovery\WindowsRE" id="0" offset="1048576" guid="{318b254a-67c2-4d2d-ab28-25562cbe3f69}"/>
