    The exact purpose of Recovery Partition - X200MA Windows 8.1

    I have Asus X200MA laptop with Windows 8.1 OEM. There are two special hidden partitions on it.
    Recovery NTFS 900MB
    Restore NTFS 16GB

    I know that Restore (16GB) holds the OEM image that can be used to restore the laptop to factory default OS.
    However I am not too sure what is the purpose of Recovery Partition?

    When is it used and what will happen if I delete it?

    Different vendors may call them differently, so I am trying to understand the exact difference between and purpose of Recovery & Restore partitions as named by Asus on this laptop.
