    When I first got this product, before opening I thought that all the 500gb would go to the first partition, but then I saw that the recovery partition has half of the 500gb just for recovery which is unnessecery.

    But I had no problem with this at the time, and used the recovery partition(after saving to a disk) for ubuntu so I could have a dual boot.

    But now I've came to realise that the games I'm downloading are taking more and more room up on my C drive. The problem I have is that I can shrink my recovery partition and enlarge the C drive.

    Does anyone know a work around?

    You will need an 3rd party software to shrink the recovery partition and to add the free space the existing C partition.
    I would recommend you an freeware tool called Gparted

    But before you would start doing this, create a recovery disk!
    This is advisable in case you would try to set the notebook back to factory settings using such disk.
