Why does the SW314-57-74V6 not have a Recovery Partition?

This model only has SSD of 256GB. It came with Windows 10 Home installed.

    Note that there either needs to be another partition on the example @brummyfan2 posted or you need to have created a recovery image on an external drive in order to actually recover from a failure of some sort. His partitions are: 100MB EFI partition, extends BIOS image for UEFI boot, 452.82GB Windows partition, 1GB Recovery partition holds the files needed in order to launch the recovery environment. If he had a recovery image partition it would be somewhere around 10GB and would follow those.

    Thanks. I used your prompts and found my way to Disk Management. I can see that my 256 GB SSD does in fact have a Recovery Partition. Thank you for your patience with me. I'm new to Windows 10 and Acer products.
