Not only are they hidden normally, but they are severely compressed and for protection against infection, can only be accessed through the recovery console. The recovery drive contains just the required files in order to reinstall your entire system drive to the way it was shipped from the factory and the wipe/format and install programs. Nothing more, Nothing less.

If you say what you are trying to do, there is probably someone here that can tell you a better, easier way to do it (as long as you are not trying to decompile Windows, their installer, or find a way to infect the partition).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Why are you poking around in the recovery partition?

Unless you know what you are doing then it is not a good idea to mess around with the recovery partition - it is usually marked as hidden for a reason.

Did you make the restore set from that hidden partition? If so, then use those disks to poke around if you must at all.
