In the Start menu search box enter


In the results that are offered, right-click on Computer management and select Run as admin.

In the Computer management window, select Disk management.

You can now see a list of all your drives & their partitions.  The one you are interested in may actually be called Recovery but it may not.  You should look at any partition that is 8-16GB in size.

Now close the Computer management window without touching anything else as this window contains powerful commands that can really mess up your PC if they are misapplied.
