Recovery Partition is the part of the drive to reset the machine back to how it was when you bought it.
The other part, the System Reserved part, was created by Windows when it was first installed. It has different uses depending on the version of Windows you have and how it's been setup. It may not even be needed at all. For the sake of, in your case, 94Mb it isn't even worth worrying about.
