    Would prefer not to lose the Factory Recovery Partition .
    You could back that up and keep it offline, or put it on a different disk.

    1) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:

    Code:
    bcdedit /enum
    bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    reagentc /info
    diskpart
    list disk
    list volume
    select disk 0
    detail disk
    list partition
    select partition 1
    detail partition
    select partition 2
    detail partition
    select partition 3
    detail partition
    select partition 4
    detail partition
    select partition 5
    detail partition
    select disk 1
    detail disk
    list partition
    exit

    2) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    3) Post images of the Minitool partition wizard into the thread.
    Can't do what you requested because I dont have his computer with me. I am not sure I trust my fried to do it by himself because he may mess things up which would be a catastrophe !

    They are diagnostic commands and are pasted all at once.
    So there should be little to mess up.
    It may be possible to communicate by telephone as the command is pasted into command prompt?
    The results should be displayed immediately after clicking enter.
    Then save to notepad and save to a flash drive or email.

    I plan to get hold of his laptop in a day or so. I will then do all the diagnostics and check various folder sizes etc. Will paste to thread when done. Tks
