    It's a place on a Disk Drive that stores files that can be used to recover your PC to a working state. Typically it will contain files to re-install your PC to a factory setup.

    It is a segregated partition that hold the files needed to restore your computer. It can allow you to reinstall to a clean state (wiping out all your files and making your computer like "new" again) or in more modern cases restore your OS and retain files. It should be a write protected area that you don't read from or write to when operating inside the OS on a day to day basis.

    Tampering with your Recovery Partition is definitely for advanced users.

    Is there a particular reason behind the question so we may provide more in depth help?
