Windows 10 update adds Healthy Recov partition
 
Have noticed a new "Healthy Recov" partition (881mg) was added after recent Windows 10 update. A right-click doesn't give any info. except a "help" that leads to something like this: https://www.bing.com/search?q=window...22&form=S00028

That extra partition looks useless (have own backup system) but it can't be deleted or can it?

The more I hear about Windows 10 the more I am glad I have made the considerable effort to reject and remove all the "offers".
As I keep saying, I will stick with Windows 7 until all support stops, by which time I suspect I really won't be alive enough to care either way.

Puppy Linux supplies all my personal needs anyway - apart from Outlook.

I can always delete it with a Linux distro.

If system crashes, it's your fault Burn-IT (just kiddin', has to be somebody elses fault).

I do a daily system backup to a second disk while I'm making coffee!!
Once a week I copy the latest to an external drive.
Both of those disks have a Linux on them. My backup copies are designed to be run from ANY command prompt that can access them.

Very wise!
I usually do a full backup about every week.

Anyway, deleting that extra "healthy" partition via Solus Budgie has had no effect.

Are you using a laptop or a desktop?

Are you sure the partition wasn't there before? Doesn't feel right that a Windows Update would create one. Why would it?

My cousin got the latest update on his system and there is no such partition.

Maybe you got a software like Aomei One Key Recover.y?

Laptop Anupam.

Can't think of any other reason for that partition to have shown up there.
The timing just points to that update.
Of course, i can't be 100% sure since i don't check the partitions every day...
Not familiar with Aomei One Key.

Strange. Why would they want to add a recover.y partition? :confused:

It's a resource for Windows users to recover from it containing links to stress management centers, psychological counselling and online pharmacies. :D
