Sorry to necro bump, but this happened to me on a brand new surface pro I bought (300$ on ebay couldn't say no)

I removed the recovery to get the 8 gigs back after upgrading to 8.1 and had to use diskpart to remove partition 5 which was a 450mb recovery between my C and my New Volume. once removed, I deleted the new volume and all 8.x gbs of space was added back to my C drive.

happy happy happy

Got a 128gb sd card, changed the libraries to pool from the D: drive and alls good here
What is the command line in diskpart to remove partition 5?

Run command as admin
Disk part
List disk
Select active disk
List partition
Note the 450mb recovery part
Delete partition x (probably 4 but double check)
If it fails (probably) read the error there will be an override command: delete partition x noerr override

This will prevent the system from rejecting the delete.

You can then delete the 8 GB partition as well using the same command and you should have a bunch of free space. You can use diskpart or disk manager to add that to your C
