    Will W10 delete my partition drive after install?

    Hi all,

    Stupid question probably, however I cannot find an answer online and I'm not the most tech savvy.

    I bought a HP laptop around Christmas last year. The laptop came with a recovery partition, which I still to date haven't got around to getting a 32gb drive to back it up to.

    I stupidly left W10 installing this morning when my upgrade was offered, but am worried now that the partition with my recovery may be deleted and I may no longer be able to get that onto a drive in case I ever need to re-install the laptop.

    Has anyone successfully installed W10 and can tell me whether the recovery partition will still be there when I get home?

    Thanks for any responses everyone.

    No, it won't delete any partitions. It will upgrade your existing Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, nothing more.
