How to release hidden partition

The one key recovery tool is not needed, therefore I uninstalled it from my Lenovo Idea Notebook 500.

Now still 22GB are consomed by "someghing" - potentially a hidden partition, created by the onekey recovery tool I never wanted.

My Idea Notebook has 128GB of SSD drive and it tells me that only 105GB are available to me. How can I make more memory available?

Thank you.

Re: How to release hidden partition

Hi oliver_bu ,



Welcome to the Community Forums .


Heads up , voluntarily deleting the recovery partition would void your software recovery claim.
Either that you create a recovery drive / clone or purchase a recovery media to get your Windows10 back.

Re: How to release hidden partition

I have Lenovo YOGA 710 and used Create a recovery drive to take a backup of my OS in a pendrive. After that i have selected Delete my recovery partition but it failed showing some error. then i have checked the recovery drive (pendrive), it contains only 2GB files. thus the recovery drive doesnt have the exact file, i suppose. I have checked Disk Management, it shows the Healthy Recovery partition, OEM partition, EFI system partition contains no files ( 100% free space).
Now i couldnt reinstall windows from one key recovery too.
Do i get restoring the hidden partition and the features of one key recovery..? how..?
