[QUOTE=Jargenis;1090826]Comp: HP Laptop

I have the recovery on disk's (So can bring back to factory setting whenever.)
There is a 12 Gig partition for recovery on HD, I have 32 gig left of HD space. Should I get rid of the partition and just hope the the disk's hold up? Comp is 5 years old, so most likely going to be getting a new one within the next 2-4 years, if this lasts till then.
Thanks in advanced for your comments.[/QUOTE]
Just get yourself another HDD, like a 20 or 40 Gb, and slave it for whatever you were going to use the recovery partition for and leave the recovery partition alone, it's there for a reason.
