    Additional Info on partitions


    Here is the info on the 4 partitions.
    The second partition (E) appeared after using Minitools Partition Wizard to set up partitions on an external hard drive. Since which I have local drives I to R which have no size or content. MiniTools say they can do nothing about it.

    It only hides the MSR partition. We cannot see Drive 0 - you need to drag bottom of window down to enlarge window so we can see all drives.

    Hi,
    You have 2 system recovery partitions
    At least one of them might be able to be removed
    Go to this pc and C and see if you have a windows.old folder or a upgrade folder
    You might need to show hidden folders files and drives to see it in folder options.

    Windows.old was deleted some time ago.
    Can I simply delete all the partitions on drive 1 (Internal drive) and re partition it as a single partition.
