a recovery partition is just that a recovery partition. they don't get a drive letter and you cant read/write to them in windows. If your wanting to store system recovery points or backups then buy a second drive and save them to that. I like to use external drives for any backups so if the main drive does crash it wont take out all the recovery points / backups
