Partition at the end of SSD?

One of the "recovery" partitions is at the end of the disk. How did this happen?

It's a UEFI installation, I've just upgraded to Windows 11 through Windows Update.

Can it be deleted? I thought that a UEFI installation should need only 2 extra partitions.

It only technically needs one extra.

 

You need the EFI partition, and your main one.

In your screenshot the 16MB one is likely padding to properly align the main partition for best performance. Then the recovery one is optional, to allow trying to repair the main one if it can't boot anymore without needing separate boot media. Yes you can delete it if you want and don't need that functionality.
