    Windows 10 is installed on a 250GB SSD. It is divided into two partitions with the 476MB Recovery Partition sitting between them. I need to delete the second partition and move the Recovery Partition to the end of the drive so I can expand the OS partition.

    How can I move the Recovery Partition?

    Thanks but I was hoping for a free solution. If a commercial solution is the only way, I think I'll just try imaging the drive and rearranging everything on restoration.

    Anyway to make you own recovery DVDs ???

    After replacement, I usually keep the original HDD ... (just in case)
    Then make the recovery DVDs (plus copies) ....
    Then make an Acronis Image (or two) ....
    Then just Delete the recovery partition.

    Apps can be re-installed from the recovery DVDs - If the recovery partition is not available.

    I've done some of this, some of that and some of the other, so to speak.

    I have been known to remove the disk, take it to another computer, image the whole disk before turning a new computer on. But this is my own built box and I partitioned the SSD about six years ago. Now I want it all one partition.

    Seems we're a little alike in the variety of ways we've done it.

    As an aside, I switched from TI to Active Disk Image a few years ago. It gives me fewer problems.
