    So after updating to Win10 FCU, I noticed that I lost some storage space, due to recovery partition being created.
    So I went ahead and used partition wizard to remove recovery partition and hopefully get more usable space.
    But i ran into a problem, that's a partition called GPT (Reserved Partition) which I cannot move.
    I tried duplicating that partition to the front, but that doesn't work

    How do I adjust it so Disk 2 Looks like this:
    GPT (Reserved Partition) | GPT (UEIF System Partition) | GPT (Data Partition)

    As the way it is now, having an unmovable 16mb reserved partition right in the middle, the unallocated space infront it just wasted.

    First off, I don't know what the f**k I'm talking about so take it with a grain of salt;

    MBR = BIOS

    That GPT is umm, the partition table (?) or some s**t, basically just some unavoidable overhead (?). Besides, it's only 16MB, but I do support you fully in your quest to remove it due to principle, of course! ;-)
