Hi guys! After I move the recovery partition to an usb flash drive using the windows procedure, I can't merge the free space on the ssd because of some small partition on the drive. It is the partition number 5 in the image below.

My question is: if I delete the partition 5, will I be able to reset my surface using the usb drive I have created before, or not? Why does this partition exists? Why it should be there just in order to prevent the partitions to be merged?

No, you can't. If you want to recover the recovery space and merge with you main partition you need to reinstall windows. You can download from Microsoft the latest windows x64 pro update 1 iso and reinstall every application. Of course you need to backup all your data before.
