My OS is win7pro SP1.  Disk Management indicates that I have a (healthy 14,65g) recovery partition with 100% free space. What exactly does this mean and could it be deleted.  I do have the win7pro SP1 installation disk.

If you have an installation disk...you should not have a recovery partition, IMO.  Recovery partitions are implemented by OEMs (Dell, Lenovo, etc.) to get around the need  to provide customers an installation disk

 

System manufacturer and model?

It's a Dell Optiplex 755 SFF.  I purchased it refurbished from pcexchange.com. It's a great device and have no complaints.

And you received a Win 7 installation disk with the purchase?

 

I also have a refurb Optiplex 755...the restore partition is part of the installation process by Dell, for the reason which I previously stated.

The win7pro SP1 installation disk was included with the device.  In your opinion, can the partition be removed?  Disk Manager indicated the partition space is 100% free.

It's not 100% free, Windows cannot read that partition correctly; it may contain the drivers necessary for the Windows currently installed.  Before deleting, follow Hamlius' advice about downloading and saving the needed drivers.

I see:  160GB hard drive, which yields 149GB of useable hard drive space.

 

   Partition C: 134GB, 80GB free space.

   One 15GB partition, presumed to be Dell Recovery Partition (right size for such).  Used Space: 13.9 GB (94%) Free Space: 782 MB (6%)

   One small partition (249MB) which is normal for many installs of Windows.

 

I would leave that Recovery Partition alone...and I would examine carefully any disk which came with that system.  A Windows installation disk has not routinely been provided with any system for about 10 years now...while recovery disks have been issued or developed for systems where there was no issuance of a Windows Install disk.  The two are completely different items.  I believe that some recovery disks...require that the (hidden) recovery partition be used in order to effect a complete restore-to-factory-defaults.

 

On the other hand...if you truly have an installtion disk for Genuine Windows 7...and a valid key to use said disk...then you don't need the recovery partition but leaving it alone won't do any harm.
