 Get an external hard drive and good backup software and make full system backups.  I use Easeus Todo Backup Free which is free for home use.


 Good luck.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Press the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the X key at the same time.


In the menu that opens select Disk Management.


When the disk management opens take a screenshot of it and post it in your topic.


How to make a screenshot
1. Download and run A Thousand Words .
2. Follow the wizard to capture a screenshot
3. Use the built-in editor to resize, edit, or re-capture your screen shot. 
4. Your screen shot will be saved to your desktop when you finish the wizard.
You can post the screenshot in your next post as an attachment.  
Just below the area where you write text in a post there is the Post button, to the right of this is More Reply Options
When you click on More Relpy Options  you will see Attach Files and Browse, click on Browse, this will open Pictures on your computer, click on the image you want to post, then click on Attach This File, then Add Reply.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

"Had a computer shop erase 10 and put 8.1 back on. Now I have no restore partition."

--- Did you ask the computer shop why there isn't a restore partition like you had before?

If your computer was originally Windows 8 and you upgraded to Windows 8.1 I believe your original restore partition would have brought you back to Windows 8

--- If that is the case that is why the computer shop put 8.1 back on probably with their 8.1 software

--- I don't think it's worth pursuing creating the restore partition the way you'd like to if the above is true

--- Consider relying on system image backups as mentioned (And include backups for your personal data also)

--- I use Macrium Reflect on a monthly schedule, you mentioned AOMIE & Easeus Todo Backup Free has also been mentioned

--- If you are used to AOMIE go with what you know


With all of that said, I'll be very interested in Disk Management screenshot as requested
