Assuming, since you didn't say, that you have an OEM computer like a Dell, HP, or such. The recovery partition is more than likely put there by them and is usually accessed by inserting the recovery CD or other media provided by your Manufacturer. Keep in mind the use of this media is usually a one way destructive operation. Meaning that it will totally wipe out everything on your computer and reformat just like the day you bought it.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
