3.Choose tab Disk Manager

4.Normally there will be C: drive D: drive and a hidden drive eat up 15-20GB but you cannot see it anywhere beside the C: and D:

5.That sir is the recovery drive, if you have it you can go ahead restart computer and try a combination key to get to recovery mode

6.How to get to recovery mode:


Bios => F2
