    See the same post that I edited if you want to try it. Oops, I see your MSR is 128 MB. Change size=16 to size=128 in the diskpart create part command.
    No, I rely upon my computer too much to want to take the chance of having to do an emergency clean install. I would likely follow Bree's suggestion—that is, just plan on doing a clean install instead of making changes. At present, everything is working fine, so I am unlikely to want to invest the time and effort to do a clean install.

    That said, I appreciate you taking the time and effort to provide the steps. Perhaps someone else will your instructions very helpful.

    I am positive that I won't bother attempting to "fix" this problem, unless I suddenly become overly ambitious with my computer. And even then, it'll be a fresh install....
    I'm glad to hear that. A clean install would be easy enough, even if you claim to be 'inexperienced', but it would gain so little that it would be a shame to wipe a perfectly working system just to gain a few MB.

    If it is that important to you, then you should definitely look into making a system image for an emergency restore should anything get corrupted. Macrium Reflect (free) is recommended by many on this forum.

    It would take me a weekend. I would have to go through and make sure that I have archived all my customized settings. For example, I have customized Excel, Word, and a few Adobe products. I would have to use CCleaner or something to take an inventory of my software.

    Once the new Windows is installed along with my software I would have to recreate various customizations. I am sure many of these customizations are easy for those that know what they are doing. For me, I would have to recall how to set my Documents to my S drive and so on. I am sure I would figure it out.

    But it's a lot of work that I don't need to do. So I will pass on the experience for now.
