    K. That's weird. My diskpart says 0 bytes free as well. I'm going to work on cleaning up my wife's tablet now, and let you know what I figure out.

    Do you also see Disk 2 or a recovery partition?

    Use free Partitionwizard. It can delete the partition.

    How do you explain that all three "disks" have 0 bytes free?
    0 bytes free output is the total unpartitioned space on each of the physical drives, not the free space in each logical volume

    To see the free space in each volume:
    select disk #
    detail disk
    select volume #
    detail volume

    Can you try clean instead of delete partition:
    select disk 2
    clean

    No. I only see the 1 internal "disk" which has 6 partitions and the micro SD card installed. That is why I am wondering where your third disk is coming from. I would also recommend using MiniTool Partition Wizard Free. That is what I am going to use.

    As always @topgundcp , Clean only causes Diskpart to crash. I also tried that.

    Like I said, mine only shows the internal memory and the MicroSD card inserted:

    The internal memory had 6 partitions. I believe the last 8 GB recovery partition is the same as you are trying to delete:

    I ran Macrium Reflect Free and made an image of the entire hard drive. I used MiniTool Partition Wizard Free to delete the two original recovery partitions - moved the Windows 10 recovery partition to the end of the disk and then extended the OS partition into the free space. I had no issues deleting any partitions. The only issue I had was that I could not extend the OS partition into the free space in front of it created by deleting the first recovery partition. I expect if I created a bootable MiniTool Partition Wizard USB and booted into it, I probably could do that.

    Here's what I ended up with:

    The question remains - why is your Recovery Partition showing up as a third disk and not just a partition on the first disk (internal memory)? I would try MiniTool Partition Wizard. And if you really want to try brute force, make a MiniTool Partition Wizard bootable USB and boot from that.

    What if you try to set the recovery partition as a basic data disk partition:
    select disk 2
    select partition 1
    set id=EBD0A0A2-B9E5-4433-87C0-68B6B72699C7 override

    I forgot about that. I'll bet that's it!
