Dell Recovery Partition

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I am looking to remove the Dell Recovery Partition since it is on a 120gb SSD. Can anyone help me with that without corrupting the whole OS?

Simply delete it and extend the os partition in its place.

use easeus partition master home edition.

backup any important data first/make a system image before dong so in case of an issue.

I would normally agree with you... But I already did that with no success. The partition gets deleted, BUT the OS corrupts beyond repair. Sends all files unsigned and verified with unknown locations.... It's weird. Only Dell partitions seem to do this.

I have never had that issue. o.0

what files corrupt? Does it just not boot or what?

-nevermind-

The deletion would remove the formatting.

In Dell computers, I think the active partition is the recovery partition......See what happens if you resize the recovery partition down.
