    27.777Gb NTFS (c)
    449Mb (Recovery)

    Disk1
    7.03Gb (Recovery partition)

    Reading older threads, the latter is the original Windows 8 recovery partition on a special internal drive and I can't do anything with it.
    I think the 700Mb recovery partition is from Windows 8.1. I'd like to delete this and use the space to expand the main (C) drive. Is this possible and is so, what is the best (easiest, free) way of doing it?
    I still haven't figured out which one Win10 needs. If you delete or merge the 700 (& maybe the 449, too), it will screw up the EFI pointers & Windows won't boot.

    Use my procedure in #8 above.

    Lots of you haven't experimented much huh? The 8GB partition has the FACTORY version of Windows 8 regardless of the fact that you thought you destroyed W8 in Windows 10. By factory, I mean it is exactly the way you had it if you purchased it brand new (or refurbished). For some reason, Asus made it secure, so it may be vital to keep it there. You can delete the 8GB partition and claim the space for yourself as I did, but other threads don't really recommend it. It is perfect for when things go horribly wrong, say your USB ports will not read USB devices because of corrosion or something and you damaged the system.

    The rest I have little information about, but this device does have a unique way of booting fast, so I assume one of those play a key role in things like that.

    When I am prepared to install W10 clean from my USB (long story), I can see all of the partitions, and that is where I decided.to destroy W8 for good. You will have about 49GB to yourself. Still not enough, so I use a PNY Hyper Performance 128GB MicroSD. Perhaps these partitions vary depending on the manufacturer of your flash storage (E.G. Sandisk VS Hynix)

    back to w8

    Hi guys,

    I purchased my used T100 upgraded to W10. I prefer W8 so I decided to downgrade to factory version.
    I tried built in recovery but it restored a fresh W10.
    I still have the 7.03 Gb recovery partition untouched.

    Is it possible to resurrect original W8 from this partition?

    Thanks!

    Do you have windows 10 for more than 30 days?
    Windows gives you a backtrack in case something like this happens.

    Yes I do have it more than 30 days. I do not have the revert to W8 option any more.
    But if I really have the W8 istall files on the recovery partition (?) there might be other method to get it work.

    I had a similar issue with a corrupted recovery attempt.
    I created a usb recovery drive from MS and installed from there.
