Windows 10 Setup creates a recovery partition at the disk’s “right end”, as you can see in Windows hard disk management.

While the recovery partition exists, you cannot use Windows HDD management to enlarge a partition besides the recovery, and you also cannot delete the recovery partition within the graphical interface.


Use command-line tool diskpart:
