Hey guys, hope I'm posting in the correct area.
I have a question regarding the partitions on my Inspiron 17. I had done a reset using the Dell Recovery when my dad gave me his laptop he bought 2 years ago. I wanted to wipe it clean. After it was done, I checked the windows version and it was 1607. I decided to use the Windows Media Creation tool to reinstall Windows with the newest version instead of downloading all the updates. When I got to the step where it asks "Where do you want to install Windows", I had multiple Recovery partitions
Drive 0 Partition 4: 869MB/458MB Recovery
Drive 0 Partition 5: Image 10.3GB/533MB Recovery
Drive 0 Partition 6: Dell Support 1.1GB/485MB Recovery
Those are the partitions, in order. Can someone explain why there are 3 Recovery partitions (including an unnamed one)? What would happen if I were to delete them?
Thanks for the help!
