Hello! I have a Dell 1525 Inspiron Lapton. When I bought it, it came with Vista and had a (D:) recovery drive. However, I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and have the Win 7 Upgrade Disk. If anything goes wrong with my laptop, instead of using the recovery drive, can't I just pop in the disk and do a clean install? Therefore, do I really even need this Recovery partition? I would appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks.

Not really, unless you're planning to go back to Vista.

It's better to back up to some external source.
