I think that the recovery Tag is far too broad as there are so many different types of recovery (which also have tags for them) such as data-recovery, password-recovery, partition-recovery and so on. I think it needs to be split up into different types of recovery. Then obviously Axe the recovery tag.
Completely agree with you. Checked first 50 question of tag - found no reason to keep it.
Moreover, a lot of questions tagged with recovery tag also have data-recovery, password-recovery andpartition-recovery tags with them which makes recovery tag unmeaningful.
Another part of questions use 2 tags e.g. partition and recovery in place of partitiion-recovery, so they can live without recovery too.
And this question is probably the best evidence for removing it.
