    128 MB other partition

    Does anyone know what these 128 MB "other partitions" are that show up with Partition Wizard ?

    They do not show up in Disk Management.

    I`d like to delete them if possible.

    If it`s nothing to worry about, then I`ll just leave them be.

    Thanks, Brian :)

    Is that because I setup them up as GPT drives ?

    None of my 500 GB drives have that show up in PW and they are also GPT.

    I`m baffled, befuddled, amazed and astounded.... All at the same time

    I have them on some drives too, seem to recall when I looked into it they were something to do with the GPT file system rather than the OS so obviously left them alone - when it come down to it between internal and external over five disks I have 2 128MB, on an 8TB external and a 3TB Internal 1 an 8MB on a 2TB and nothing on another 3TB with less than half of the disk partitioned confusing yes, but not enough to worry about
