    Reserve System E


    I mistakenly deleted reserved system E. Can I get it back? It was full and showing a solid red line. What is happening to stuff that should be in system reserved E?

    Check your Recycle Bin, your system may not boot without it!

    How did you delete it in the first place?

    Did you upgraded your system from earlier version of Windows, or dual booting?
    Because normally you shouldn't see that partition. And it doesn't have letter associated with it.

    It may be leftover from previous Windows installation.

    I checked the recycle bin there is no system reserved E listed. I was on a page that showed me the stuff in my system ( please know that I don't know what words to write ). The menu listed reserved system E. I right clicked on it and got another menu with several options. One of them was to "unallocate" it. Since I had previously seen a solid red line on system reserved E and kept getting pop up messages that system reserved E was full and no more space was available, I decided to "unallocate" it thinking that would free up space. Instead the action , I guess, Uninstalled it.

    Not good!
    First thing you need to do, before you even think of shutting down that machine, backup all your stuff, create rescue media or clean install media, and check for a restore point or a system image!

    This is a long shot, after backing up data material onto reliable external media, create a usb or dvd boot with MiniTool Power Data Recovery, which includes a partition restore function. Or, any utility with such a function. Boot and see if the System Reserved can be restored. If you're uncomfortable with a partition utility, you might want a local computer guru walk you through it, 'cause s/he can see what is going on as whatever is going on -- and guide you through the maze.

    RolandJS has a good suggestion: Minitool Partition Wizard might be able to recove the partition

    MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition
    Select the ISO and burn it to a CD (PW is small enough for a CD)

    Then read though this, watch the video .. it's easy

    Thanks but I don't know if I'm brave enough to try this. Will let you know if I get it figured out.
