Yeah, if you dont want the recovery partition, go to Disk Management and format the RECOVERY drive.

It's 1 TB hard disk. Why removing a 15GB recovery partition that can be useful?

You may be right I guess I'm just freaking out I formatted my computer for the first time since I bought it ( June 2010) and I'm being a little paranoid I don't remember seeing Recovery before I guess it must been hidden or something......... anyway You are right I'm just going to leave it alone

You can also remove the disk letter in Computer Management, so you no longer see it in My Computer.
Removing disk letter will not prevent recovery partition to work.

Glad if I helped.

Cheers

You sure did! Thanks! Just one last question if I decide to format RECOVERY (I'm not saying that I will) should I burn it on cd? I do have Windows 7 on cd and I used the CD to format the computer in the first place...

The recovery partition is about 15 GB. It's unlikely you can burn it, don't you?

Well I guess the only option is flash drive 16GB+ or external hard drive

You're right, but burning it will make that partition completely unuseful.

Hiding the Dual Boot menu by setting it's timeout to 0 does not remove the Dual Boot configuration of your boot files. To do that, install EasyBCD 2.0 and remove unwanted entries on the Edit Menu tab. http://neosmart.net/blog/2010/welcome-to-easybcd-2/

Since you formatted over the OS before making your Recovery disks from the Recovery Manager, the only remaining fuctionality of the Recov partition is to run it at boot if you want to Recover to factory condition. To do this you'll need to tap the key(s) given on first boot screen, in setup literature, found by Googling, or reading your Manual at the Support Downloads webpage for your computer model.

The only way to know if files written into Recov Partition have corrupted it is to try running it. You can wait til you need to recover to factory condition (if ever) to try it, or if you don't think you'll need to do that you can wipe it anyway and later order Recov disks from manufacturer if needed, or use the OS installer to reinstall since you have it.

The only reason you might need to recover to factory condition is if you want the programs which came preinstalled on the OS reinstalled for personal use or to sell the computer. It seems like you don't since you clean reinstalled over them.

A simple format does not overwrite the factory code which can conflict with a Win7 clean reinstall. When the time comes you really want to wipe the HD to go completely clean: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
