I am running windows 8.1 and was using a standard HDD and now I have purchased a SSD. I would like to copy the recovery partition from the old HDD to the new SSD. What is the simplest way to accomplish this? Please note that I do not want to copy the entire HDD over to the SSD, I would just like to copy the recovery partition. Thanks.
