Yoga 900 partitions that can be safely deleted

Hi, I need to claim some space back on my SSD.

I have created a USB recovery key. Can I delete D:? Can I delete the 17.1GB recovery partition? What is the difference between the two?

Hidden             Recovery       1000 MB

Hidden             Recovery       17.10 GB  (free)

Lenovo (D)      Primary          25 GB (91% free)

Partition disk D are Lenovo drivers and software. If you need extra space, create recovery media via OneKey recovery and/or backup the D partition.


The hidden 17.10GB recovery partition should be Windows recovery.
