i replied back to your email man.

also another post of yours in a different section kinda u asking related to this.

As said there just depends on how you have it set up plus computer itself if it is a recovery partition or factory or if you made them. Plus if it is a upgrade win7 or a full version.

Check your mail and ill send you that prgm im talkin about for this plus backup and/or recreating partitions and wiping them clean and explain what you asked me in the mail as well.

Yes but with one of the mentioned programs but.. why would you want to do that anyways ?? It's awesome feature and always good to have on there just incase.

Can maybe make another partition tho next to it or splityour main or even on your EHD if have one. i forget what your working with and trying to do "exactly" again. can you refresh me ?


never mind i just read back some so.. Yeah as you said you dont mind re installing windows so.. uhm.. do you have or did you make the recovery disc's ?? as that will whip everything out and reinstall the main C and your OS plus create the back up recovery partition again as well so its like factory.

If you wanted to not use that recovery drive yes you could whip it out by cleaning whats in it and use it for something else. ( as far as im thinking right now you can with no problems i dont believe) But i really wouldnt advise it anyways as i said thats a good thing and feature to have on there.
