    Question is do you want to use system restore
    ...After that delete partition 2 if you want too.
    The recovery partition does more than just system restore, but you can live without one - just make sure you have the latest bootable install usb handy (or make a recovery drive usb) as they include all the same tools. You never know when you might need the other repair functions normally provided by a recovery partition.

    Just for info:

    Personally I'd still like to have the EFI partition on drive #0 but that's just me.

    Moving EFI from drive 1 to drive 0 is easy using minitool partition wizard free's partition copy function.

    My thoughts exactly. Always make a backup image before you start though.
