er I'm a little puzzled some people say don't defrag your recovery drive/ recovery partition ( D in my HP laptop ) and some say it's OK , look how much mine is fragmented -defragresults.png
what should I do , is it OK to defrag my recovery drive ?
and just to add my C drive is fine I defrag that when ever it's needed but I've been fear-ful of de-fragging my recovery drive D

Hello Juxxize,

Usually it's not recommended to defrag the recovery partition. I would say let it be since if anything went wrong with it, you would no longer be able to do a factory recovery of Windows with it.

It's not going to hurt anything since you are not supposed to be using this partition for anything other that doing a factory recovery as needed.

If you have not already, I would also recommend to create a set of recovery discs or save a recovery image to a USB flash drive as a backup.

Hope this helps,

Thank-you Brink, i have a back-up and system image i made on an external hard-drive ( although it's about time i did a fresh back-up ) and i made a system repair disk a while back although i may make another just to be on the safe side . I've not heard of the Recovery Disc Creation/ Recovery Media Creation which is the second option mentioned in the page of the link you posted so i will look into that but having a repair, backup and system image i made along with the back-up i should be OK. It is odd my recovery drive has got so fragmented isn't it when it isn't used. I factory reset my laptop a few months ago but apart from that it's never used so it's odd indeed, thanks again.
