Hi,

Thank you for writing to the Dell Community Forum.

The recovery partition is the Dell Factory Image partition which would have the factory image of the Windows operating system, drivers & software the system was originally shipped with. Below links provide you more info on this:

You will also be able to go back to the previous Windows from within Windows 10 if it was an upgrade and not a clean installation. The Windows .old folder contains the files of the previous Windows. The link below guides on how to revert back to the previous Windows:

Note that in addition to all that has been written, the N7110 is not tested by Dell for Windows 10 compatibility.
