I have a laptop that has Disk 0 and Disk 1.   Disk 1 is my D drive.    Disk 0 is my issue.   It is setup like this:

OS C;     990 MB healthy recovery partition.   1.4GB healthy recover partition.   My issue is I can't wipe out the Two recovery partitions.  I want one huge 3GB drive.  I don't need the recover partitions.    Using Disk Management I can't delete them or partition them.  Using Diskpart I can see the Volumes but both are Hidden and I can't Unhide them.    I've googled this and I've tried doing detail partition   and set id = 07 override and nothing works.


how do I Unhide them so I can format them and use the space?

recovery partitions are needed by the OS to recover the os in case of boot failure, you do need them, chances are your disk 0 is the system, boot disk and disk 1 is data or something else

you need to make disk 1 your system disk and then you'll be able to remove the partitions on disk 0.... like so...


sel disk 0




then recreate whatever partition you want on it in
