I checked my computer and my Factory Image says that 1.58 GB is free of 10.9 GB. What does this mean ?.
At the present time I have no problems.
It means everything is fine, just leave it alone..

If you use Recovery Discs, it takes an extremely long time, which is possible, in my situations.
Recovery Partition takes less time, about 30 minutes, vs about 1 hour using Recovery Discs, and it may take up to 22 Hours for recovery discs..
There you go! =D
I hope this information helped

It is just that....redundant. As in, you loose the CD's/DVD's or delete the recovery partition by "accident", you can recover and move on.
Redundancy is a good thing when it comes to computers.

Recovery partitions are to recovery your OS in the event the OS gets really messed up. Please don't mess with it in any way. The recovery partition is used ONLY for holding the files needed to recover your OS, not personal data, music, or anything else.
What ever happened to hiding this so people don't even see it? Dell still does. HP....please follow suit and hide it.
And to those that asked / wondered, no it won't slow your machine down. In fact, it is at the end of the drive, has it's own partition, and the OS sees it as a seperate Hard Drive all together. The partition is only as large as it needs to be to hold the recovery data, plus a couple gigs so Windows doesn't keep alerting the user that the drive is getting full.
