    Removing the recovery partition prevents you from rolling back to your machine's factory default settings. Why not hide it instead?

    If we're talking about the Recovery Partition added by a manufacturer, and not the one that Windows added out of the blue with the 1803 update. In the latter case Windows kindly overwrote my over-provisioned space with a Recovery Partition that i neither needed or wanted.

    Yes, I was talking about the recovery partition that came with the PC when one first bought it. As for the over-provisioned space, @CountMike in a previous post #493 has already explained why it is like that for some Samsung SSDs and should probably be left as is.

    If you want to roll back to previous , better ( much better !) use your Macrium backup..............

    It depends on what we are talking about. When I first bought my PC, it came with a whole bunch of bloatware, crapware if you will. Before doing any change, i.e removing them, my first reflex was to make a backup that I still have to this day in case I want to put the PC back exactly the way it was at the time of purchase.

    Admittedly, after that first step, one can remove any annoyances such as the crapware, the recovery partition that came from the manufacturer etc..in order to put your machine to your liking. From there, one can start the sequential backups (differential, or incremental) which are quite a different story from the first crucial backup that unfortunately some users always forgot to make. That was my point. LOL

    " Do not ever remove the GPT Parition "..................WHAT do you mean by GPT Partition ? Is it the Recovery-Partition ??
    GPT is not a partition. It is, instead, a "Partition Scheme". Which means . . . Oh, heck, I'll let How-To Geek tell you all about it while I go read up on it for myself. I've created enough bootable USB Flash drives with Rufus to know what I'm supposed to do, but not all the particulars.

    Whats the Difference Between GPT and MBR When Partitioning a Drive?

    The Recovery Partition associated with the OS (not OEM anything) does not contain any data that can be used to roll back to anywhere. It is simply a set of tools in the WinRE. It is also, to my understanding, where Macrium gets the data for the newly supported RE Rescue Environment. If it is deleted, that option is no longer available, and Macrium will tell you it must use the PE Environment from WADK. And the options in Settings>Recovery will not function correctly. This is all just my understanding. May be all wrong. Here is what mine looks like. Notice it also contains the Macrium Changed Block Tracker data. This is what Mine looks like (using MiniTool Explore):
