  • 15GB "Recovery Image" after upgrading to windows 10. Do I need this partition?

    So after upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, there's this "Recovery Image" taking up 15GB of my SSD (highlighted in disk management screenshot). It is a "primary partition".
    **Note that I am still within the 30 day period that I am able to go back to windows 8.1 from the Windows 10 settings.


    I tried to see if this was a system image that I can recover to by booting into the recovery environment > System image restore. However, no system images were found on any of my drives. Afterwards, I decided to assign a letter to the "recovery image" partition to see what exactly was inside it and I am still unsure of what it is. (screenshot of files within "Recovery Image" drive E)

    Does anybody know what this partition is for? I do plan to be able to reset to windows 8.1, so I am unsure if I should delete this "recovery image".
