    You can't. Recovery partitions are generally full and that is not a problem. It won't cause you any problems that you deleted it but you just won't be able to restore your computer back to factory state without ordering a set of recovery discs from HP.

    Try some partition recovery tools, like Easeus partition recovery or Partition Wizard, which all works well.

    I wouldn't trust using data recovery on a recovery partition, it may give you the false sense that everything is recovered and good until you go to use it and there is one missing or corrupt file that prevents the partition from booting or fails during a restore.
