Personally i dont use Windows Back up,seems buggy but maybe im not trying hard enough.
Download Partiton Wizard Home Edition (i advise downloading the bootable disc and burning it incase you need it,very useful tool) Free Download Partition Wizard
Format the Recovery partiton via PW.Click Apply
Delete Partiton.Click Apply
Expand the nearest Partiton (Right click Partiton>Resize) with the deleted space.Click Apply
Then you can use Paragon Free Backup Software: Paragon Backup & Recovery 10 Free Edition - Overview
Make a back up disc (it will fit on the one disc) and just update the disc as you see fit,it leaves you with more room on your hard drive.
I have and will again use the recovery CD,and to this day i have not had 1 problem.
Just an option.
