    Multiple partitions on the same, what can I do to clean this up?


    I know I have same Battlefield games installed, but it's a mess on where they're actually installed. Should I just back everything up and start cutting?

    Hi 1NigghtWolf. Welcome to the TenForums @1NightWolf

    Depends. What are you trying to achieve?

    When I look at what you posted I think I see an old 1TB spinner that was once your boot drive. Looks like it might have had some other OS on it as well, the Ext4 partitions.

    Are you dual booting between Windows Os's or other OS's?

    Then you got yourself a smaller C:, likely SSD, and installed Windows.

    Maybe with some background info a member will be able to better answer.

    I've got Windows 7 and 10 installed, with 10 being my primary. I'd like to uninstall 7 actually, I don't use it. So the drive I'm currently using now is likely the SSD? The 1TB has the Windows 7 on it?

    Looks like the 1 TB HDD that needs a bit of tidying.
    The obvious ones to get rid of are the 2 Ext4 Linux type partitions, you are the one to know what those are and anything you may need. Likewise the other partitions.

    Impossible question asking others about the contents of your own HDDs.
