Win10 Pro can't update itself on my Lenovo ThinkCentre M75e 5042 A7U.
I suspect it's because the Lenovo_Recovery partition on my hard drive is completely full.
The last time a recovery point had been set on this computer was before I inherited it and upgraded it from Win7 Pro.  And after upgrading, I made a disk image, so I can always restore my computer from that if anything major went wrong.  So there's nothing in the Lenovo partition I need.
So I can just delete what's in the Lenovo partition, right?  And how should I do that?
BTW, the Windows partition is still named Windows7_OS for some reason.  That's not a problem, is it?
Also BTW, in addition to the system, Windows and Lenovo partitions, there's also another small (450 MB), unnamed partition on the disk.  THAT isn't a problem, right?
Thanks for any help.

I doubt the recovery partition has anything to do with it.


I'll offer you the advice I just offered someone else who's having update problems, as I find this method works when the usual "through Windows Update" method doesn't:  Updating Windows 10 using the Windows 10 ISO file
