    Shouldn't there also be a WM10 Phone Defrag show, or does the Defrag Show also handle WM10 Phone Q&As? Love your show anyway!

    About: Why do I have so many Hard Drive Recovery partitions and can they deleted?

    The question was mainly because I had a recovery partition unhidden and mounted as a D drive, and I was not sure if that was related to the fact that the machine had 4 previous recovery partitions.

    Investigating I've found that one partition was the recovery media, other the UEFI, other a Sony recovery (I believe to recover faulty UEFI/BIOS) and the rest Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 recovery.

    So, I've created the recovery media and the Windows 10 recovery USB. This allow me to access an option to delete the partitions, but this option was not working.

    So, in the end I used MiniTool Partition Wizard to remove all partitions but UEFI, Sony UEFI recovery and data. This allowed me to gain some more free space on the 128gb SSD, and also I now have access to some unpartitioned space at the end of the disc.
