    My laptop came preinstalled with win 8.1 At that time i had following partitions on my 1 TB HDD - the 400 MB recovey partition, the 260 MB EFI system Partition, the 22.92 GB oem recovery partion (HP) and the C drive
    I then partitioned my C drive to give me E and F
    I have upgraded to win 10 through windows updates - this resulted in one more recovery partition of 829 MB

    Please advise which paprtitions i may delete and earn HDD space

    How did the 400 MB recovery partition get there as i have only upgraded only once

    PS a .wmi file seems to be the largest file in both the non oem recovery partitions

    Thanks
