For my Lenovo T400 with Windows 7, I created three DVDs from its recovery partition. I was wondering

  • if it is better to verify that the recovery disks are working and how to? I don't want my current system to be overwritten.
  • if I can delete the recovery partition now and release the space.

So you have 3 DVDs that you made by imaging the recovery partition? Could you clarify? – digitxp Feb 5 '11 at 20:06

You can use vmware player to boot from the disks and see if your system is restored to your liking.
