    Windows 10 Upgrade HDD Partitions


    I just upgrade a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10. When looking at the partitions on my SSD I noticed:

    What are all these extra partitions? EFI System I guess is from GPT partitioning.
    Is there any benefit to a clean install of 10 being that my upgrade was on a fresh install of Win 7 with other software reinstalled running for ~ 1 week?

    EFI system partition contains your boot files and recovery partition contains the WindowsRE (recovery environment). You'll get exactly the same result on a clean install on a GPT disk.
