Can only use half of my ssd

I have a Crucial MX300 525GB SSD and I can only access 232GB of space. On disk manager the drive is in 2 portions one that is my main drive and the other is a 256GB recovery drive. Is there any way i can shrink the recovery volume or delete it completely. I have tried using diskpart to delete the recovery drive but it didn't work.

    I ran into this as well with my 525gb and eventually had to use the windows 10 fresh install to format it correctly. Have you tried macrium reflect? Iits a good program that has some cool partition tools. In the end it was ineffective at solving my issues though. Now it reads 489.02GB
  2. I've successfully done this in the past with EaseUS partition manager, which is free for download.
