the backup will be a yellow arc folder. It will be where you told the program to save it to.

No one can know that - except you.

If you want to delete the Recovery partition, just delete it in Disk management. You can then recover it into the partition to it's left. Partition or Volume - Extend

If you want to include it in a partition to its right, you must use a partition manager like free Partition Wizard.
