    Deleting Recovery Drive from PC running on Windows Vista

    My PC running on Windows Vista get slowed down after installing an app into it. When I checked, I found the memory is not enough to run that app. Therefore, I am planning to delete Recovery Drive from my system to create more space. What should I do for that?

    You can delete it with the Computer Management Utility on Windows Vista. To open that utility, first click the ‘Start’ button and select the ‘Control Panel’ available on the start menu. Then, click the ‘System and Maintenance’ option and choose ‘Administrative Tools’ option. After that, you can find the ‘Computer Management’ option which can be opened with a double click. Confirm the operation while prompted and go to the left navigation pane. Locate the ‘Storage’ list item and click on ‘Disk Management’ option under it. Once the driver set up finish loading on the screen, choose the ‘Recovery Drive’ from the list of volumes appears on the screen. Right click on the drive and left click the ‘Delete Volume’ option from the available menu. Finally, confirm the delete process by pressing the ‘Yes’ option visible on the prompt message.

    Hi,

    Instructions
    1
    From the Start menu, go to "Settings" and select "Control Panel." Double-click "Computer Management" and select "Disk Management." Find the recovery drive partition (usually the smaller of the two partitions on the "Disk 0" indicator).


    2
    Right-click the recovery drive partition, and select "Delete Logical Drive." Click "Yes" to delete the logical drive.


    Skip this step if Disk Management only gives the "Delete Partition" option.


    3
    Right-click the recovery drive partition, and click "Delete Partition." Click "Yes" to delete the partition. Reboot the computer system to complete the process.


    Tips & Warnings

    Although these instructions apply to Windows XP, the Disk Management feature in Windows Vista and Windows 7 function similarly.


    Some recovery drive partitions are not set up as logical drives in the Windows operating system. If this is the case, you only need to delete the partition.


    Upon deletion, you cannot recover the recovery drive partition.

    Thank Q.
