    Use Disk part to show you similar from admin command prompt. Type Diskpart then list disk, then select disk 0, then list partition

    I get these five partitions:
    1: System, 260 MB
    2: Reserved, 128 MB
    3: Primary, 21 GB
    4: Recovery, 450 MB
    5: Recovery, 6945 MB

    I have had Windows 10 for 1 month or so,ybe a bit more.

    If I reinstall the Lenovo firmware from their website, is there a chance that it might find the recovery partition? Not that I need windows 8 at this point though, I would rather revert back to windows 10 instead if given the option.

    Windows 10 has " create a USB recovery drive" to boot from to troubleshoot issues when system will not start. Since Windows 8 can reset system by cleanly installing Windows without saving settings and apps or save all settings and apps. No recovery discs. Can make a disc or even put this ISO to a thumb drive for clean reinstall or for similar to recovery drive mentioned before.

    30 days meaning from old OS backup on system your bound to windows 10 now, unless you had original media made. Firmware not going to help. Your best bet at this point is a clean install get you back more drive space. Download the proper ISO from the link and put it on a USB flash drive. Need to do this by making it bootable.

    You're thinking "Windows.old" etc , right ?

    This should allow TS to gain some considerable amount of space I'd hope:

    Run from command prompt (admin) :

    %SystemRoot%\System32\Cmd.exe /c Cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & Cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

    Can do this yes, since past 30 days now since upgrade, but still leaves the factory recovery partition which may seem useless. Unless someone else knows a way to do this,make discs from it or extract it and do this, sounds doubtful to me.

    Hi,

    Yeah, sure. He can abandon that partition or back it up if TS had usable external media. A must with a tablet coming with such a small drive IMHO.
