W8.1 with 6 partitions !
« on: February 09, 2018, 05:05:00 AM »
My current W 8.1 displays 6 partitions, 3 which are marked "Recovery". My question is what are they, can I see dates of creation or inspect any information on them.
The history of my Acer E!-571 (2012)
Shipped with W.8. upgraded to 8.1 and a recent custom install of 8.1.ISO due to issues with a recovery with factory image W 8. My intention would be to see if my recent install has generated a new recovery partition which I could revert to should more issues arise.
I do not wish to loose any Acer utilities in the process.

When I manually updated a Win 10 machine to version 1709 it gave me an additional recovery partition to the one created when I first upgraded to Win 10 from Win 7.

The original Win 10 is 450MB with the newer one being a little larger.

I did consider deleting the original Win 10 one but decided to leave it as I didn't want to risk losing the advanced boot options.

Given their size, I'd just leave them.
