    After Anniversary update...where are my hard drive boot files???


    Please help!
    After yesterdays update (I used the media creation tool), I now have 3 partitions on my C drive.
    The top drive, before the update, didn't have the partition on the right (NTFS 450MB used).
    My boot file were in my "E" drive, but now where are they?
    Can I get rid of that 450MB???

    I have a Macrium boot up drive and a couple of image files if I need to go back.

    Your boot files are still in the only Active Partition, e:.

    The 450 MB partition was your Recovery Tools partition so if your system has a problem and tries to repair itself it cannot. You will need external media. But you probably won't be able to make a Recovery Drive.
