Seems every time Windows does a major upgrade it adds recovery partition.
I use a 3rd party disk backup software and mage images of my disk once o twice a week.
I'm not sayin g I don't need a recovery partition but mine SSD has 3. I've attached a file showing
Windows Disk management.
I do understand that the Healthy EFI System Partition is definitely needed.
I'm wondering about the 2 partitions to the right of C: I'm assuming I can delete them and extend c:?
What is the 499MB Healthy (Recovery Partition?

If it were mine, I would delete the first, fourth and fifth partitions. Assuing you have disabled the recovery option in Window(?) first. You can hen extend to maximum.

No idea what "D" is. But something of yours, as you didnt mention it.

Now I'm trying to move the new volume from the left of c: to the right of c: but I'm having no luck.
I installed MiniTool Partition Wizard. In 'Move/Resize' I'm able to resize (which I don't want to do)
but I find no way to move it.
Also, the 16mb (Other) shows up in MiniTool but not in Windows Disk Management.

Am I missing something?
