    Extra Partition


    I think I have an extra partition.
    Can I remove it?

    The 500MB is the recovery partition from my Win 10 UPGRADE install, BUT now it's marked as a primary partition.
    Because I reinstalled Win 10 through Windows, not clean install, and got the 450MB partition which is marked Recovery Partition.

    I'm thinking I can delete the 500MB partition?

    Thanks for your advice

    The 46.19GB partition is my SSD OP partition.

    It appears that the 500 MB partition is the System partition that contains the boot files for the OS on C:. Delete this partition and the OS will not boot. In any event 500 MB is too small to be of any real use.

    I agree. The 450mb partition appeared after my windows reinstall. Thanks

    The screen print in post #1 does not have fields expanded, so no telling what all the info is.
    See this tutorial for how to post a proper Disk Management screen print:

    I don't know what you mean by SSD OP partition.
    The 46.19 GB space is unallocated, so it's not a useable Windows partition.

    This makes no sense. It is unallocated, available space.

    One way to clean that mess up is to back up everything you need off of it and perform a clean instillation. At that time you can delete all of those partition and start from a clean more organized slate.

    It does make sense because it is a feature for over provisioning.

    OK, now I see. Was not able to decypher the "OP". But that makes sense.

    Maybe, but the OP specs don't show if it's a SSD or HD.

    Also there is this statement in post #1, and could make a difference, on what was done and happened.
    Because I reinstalled Win 10 through Windows
