Rescue and Recovery Partition Space Issue

2017-05-29, 9:44 AM

I recently upgraded to windows 10 creator edition from the anniversary edition.

The rescue and recovery partition which is 498 mb has only just over 30 mb of free space, before this update it had 50 mb of free space.

I tried to create a new system image using the facilities in Windows, which I have used previously, but failed due to lack of space. When staring the process when it tried to create a shadow copy. if failed due to lack of space, requires 50 mb of space.

This raises 2 questions

1. What files are in this partition as I am unable to view them

2. How can I make more free space in this partition

In that case, you can please try to check your partitions on hard drives, if there are any available free space, you can resize those space to the recovery partitions.
