Disk Management Window

In Disk Management I have 31.09 GB Healthy (Recovery Partition).

I need the space. How do I get red of it and add it to my C Drive?

I don't know how. It is in a box to the left of the box with the C Drive.

my SSD is 125 GB but I only have 88.1 GB available. I have the recvery disks so I don't need a recovery partition.

We really need the picture. Your recovery partition is unusual in size and it could be active. So we have to have a look.

Couldn't fine the paper clip and I'm totally confused. There are two boxes. The one one the left shows 31.09 GB Healthy (Recovery Partition) and the one on the right shows:

TI106234WOC (C
88.15 GB NTFS
Healthy (System, Boot, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)

Sorry, but it's the best I can do.

My SSD is a 124 GB.

Without a picture of disk management we cannot help you. There are too many variables and we don't want to brick your system. The info you gave up to now does not really help.

But if you want to take chances, let us know. It's your responsibility then.

PS, the paper clip:

My Disk Management screen shows the two boxes as I've best described them. OK, give me what you have and I'll decide.

A few questions first:

1. Why is that recovery partition 31GBs. Normally they are around 10GB. How much freespace is in that partition.

2. Did you burn the recovery DVD from the recovery partition. If not, it will be difficult to reinstall the system when it crashes or has a virus.. It is not impossible, but you may have a lot of trouble.

3. Do you have an external disk to which you could make images. That could substitute for the recovery partition.

4. How much RAM do you have.

5. Did you explore other possibilities to gain space on your SSD - like deleting the hiberfile, reducing the pagefile, etc.

6. Is this a laptop or a desktop where you also have a HDD.
