    Hello.
    Could somebody be so kind as to help me please.
    In the pictures shown there is what is called active recovery partition that is 400mb in size.
    I believe this is the lost recovery partition that turned into a raw state a few months ago.

    Any advice on what exactly i should do with this please.?
    Does the picture represent a healthy disk layout.

    Many thanks.

    Hi, that partition was probably your PC manufacturer's provision to recover the PC to its delivered configuration. At 400MB it's hardly worth worrying about.

    Note that its the active partition. If you delete it, the system won´t boot.

    Yes, don't touch anything before making a full HD image with HDClone for instance.

    Hello and thanks to everyone for replying.
    Okay can they be merged.?
    So its one partition.

    As the picture shows there is 400mb free.
    What happened is,It was my factory recovery partition and it strangely turned to a RAW state and i could not recover the partition so i deleted it.

    Thanks.
