    I've got a Hp computer that has Vista Home Premium 64 bit on it and I want to remove the partition D which is the recovery partition. I have factory backup dvd's, made my own backup dvd's and have a True Image of the drive with both partitions, so I think I'm covered. Anyone know how to go about removing the complete partition?

    Hello

    I had an EISA recovery partition on a Dell laptop that I couldn't kill via the disk management snap in, so I used the diskpart.exe commands/switches to remove it.

    You could kill D: and then extend C: to cover the new unallocated space.
