    Disk management shows one less partition than diskpart and Macrium?


    Disk management shows one less partition than diskpart and Macrium-diskmgmt.jpg

    Disk management shows one less partition than diskpart and Macrium-listpartition.jpg

    Disk management shows one less partition than diskpart and Macrium-backup.jpg

    Is this the new partition created by 1809 upgrade?

    It is the Microsoft Reserved Partition - Microsoft Reserved Partition - Wikipedia

    It has been there for a long time.

    Thanks for your response. My query is why disk management does not show all partitions.

    The disk management is a Windows tool.
    It is not designed to display all partitions.
    The information that it displays can be incorrect.

    For example:
    Code:
    Although Disk Management might show the EFI system partition and the  recovery partition as 100% free, it's lying. These partitions are  generally pretty full with really important files your PC needs to  operate properly. It's best to just leave them alone to do their jobs  starting your PC and helping you recover from problems.
