    The 450mb at the end of the SSD is the new recovery Partition , I can tell by the Date Stamp , 2hrs ago, the one on the front of the SSD is dated in July 2015 when you made the MR Template is my guess.
    Hi
    Sorry to hijack this thread, I have W10 installed on a SSD.
    Looking at disk management, I do not have the second 450mb recovery partition after the C drive, I only have one 450mb partition which is the first position partition.
    Is this normal?
    Do I have to have the second one?

    Thank you

    sounds like you are Ok , one is normal for a Clean install for example, but Win10 uses a new one when it does major updates like Anniversary or Creators Update , I had the 2nd Recovery partition after Creators Update too but have since done a reinstall on this computer and it now only has one.

    Thank you very much.
    This is what it looks like ( photos attached ).
    It was a fresh install long time ago, since then it was updated, it's now on version 1703

    I am unsure why Win10 sometimes makes the extra partition or not but it maybe related to using GPT Disks or MBR diskes and what Win10 was originally installed on etc.

    Attached is a small shortcut to DiskManagement someone posted here on 10 Forums that shows a bit more info in a better layout than the STD Win10 look, you can use it as a shortcut on the desktop for example...

    I usually use the Free MiniTool Partition Wizard now, to look at Disk structures , its easier to read and shows info that Disk Management doesn't like the MSR Partition.... I have stuck with version 9.1 as it seems to have less issues than the Version 10 I tried.

    Yes, i also use partition minitool, i find it very good, i do see the 16mb hidden partition on there.
    OK so i guess i don-t have to worry about anything
