partitioning hard drive and subsequent system recovery

I have a Lenovo 3000 V100 notebook (OS : XP pro)

The hard drive had two partitions, C: (74gb) and the 5gb hidden recovery partition which naturally does not show in My Computer.

Using partitionmagic, I created an 30GB partition, making C 44GB in size. This partition is E:

My question is such : If for some reason I need to use the recovery media to restore the system, what will happen to E: ? Will it dissapear, and will the data on it be lost ? Or will it remain intact, with the data, while C gets wiped out only?
