    My People Bar is glitching in and out like crazy! Often the icon doesn't even show!

    For those who may like to have the People Bar on the left, invoke a New Toolbar, (such as DWM), unlock the Taskbar, grab the divider behind the new toolbar and pull the whole works over to the left and lock the Taskbar.

    The thing with WinRE partition on UEFI / GPT setup is that it can expand itself automatically but only "backwards", being only partition type that can do this. However, it can only expand automatically if located directly after C: partition, "steal" space from it and therefore it has to be directly after C: before any additional data partitions.

    The above in pictures, here's a sample using small SSD as system disk. Clean install Windows 10 partitioning the disk correctly, recovery partition after Windows partition:

    The same disk after a build upgrade, recovery partition needed 58 MB more space expanding backwards, taking necessary additional space from C: partition:

    (Above screenshots from Disk Management which does not show hidden and not formatted MSR partition between EFI and Windows partitions.)

    When partitioning a larger system disk this should be thought through before installing Windows. Here's for instance the partition layout before starting installation on a correctly partitioned 512 GB disk with Windows and Data partitions. Windows partition C: has been given 200 GB, enough space to avoid need to expand it later, followed by recovery partition and then last the Data partition:

    This makes of course even more sense if you also use Sysprep to relocate the complete Users folder to another drive, allowing C: to be used for Windows and software installs only.

    Thanks John for the reply.
    First the check disk finished fine, with no problems at all.
    Then I tried running sfc scan, and it does the verification part without any problems, but then it gives this error message: "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service." But remember, I loaded this as a clean build from an iso, just a few days ago. This was not an upgrade. So why would it NOT be clean? I have tried running it within the system on an admin cprompt, and then I booted into the cprompt outside the os, and it gave me the same error. So is there anyway to overcome this error, or am I stuck with loading from iso every time?

    Hi,
    @Kari

    I know exactly what you mean. In your tut I guess you want to show that when W10 can't "nibble" space of the system drive for it to expand it will create a new partition.
    Another instance where it would do so is when it considers "rollback" to a previous version. Where the two versions differ too much for the original RE partition to be overwritten making the RE environmont of the original W10 version unreliable for the rollback to succeed.

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    I see quite a few screenshots where the system drive is not on port 0.

    I checked my Insider PC and found the Recovery partition had expanded to nearly 2GB. I deleted it and merged the space back into C. The next build should put it back at the "normal" 450MB. I always delete the Recovery partition from my non-Insider systems with each new version install since I have absolutely no need for it. Windows install DVDs and USB drives have everything useful I ever found in WinRE.
