Thank you for a good point! It seems like a quite safe approach. The only concern I had is how I could do this on a system drive while Storage Executive works from full Windows installation. I found that there is a command line utility msecli.exe in SE folder which can be used to do FlexCap settings from Windows PE environment. So this is a real option. BTW, tiny visible partition is so annoying, no-go for me with that .

Hello everybody, I have faced some tricky situation with setting OP within Storage Executive on a system SSD. Since Windows 10 Microsoft recommends to place Recovery partition at the end of the partitions set (System, EFI, User, Recovery) in order to simplify any further manipulations whenever they need to extend it. This partition is semi-hidden - has no letter assigned to it. At the same time Storage Executive in order to handle a trailing spare area as OP requires that the last partition before it has to have a letter. Finally, Storage Executive either needs some named partiton before OP and after Recovery or marks Recovery partition as OP by itself (since the last named before it is volume C). Which is not good at all, I guess. Does anybody know why Storage Executive has such a strictly requirements for setting OP? Why just not to use whatever it has on hands? Maybe some ideas how to workaround this?
