    That's a partition that is part of Windows.. it supports automatic repair 'recovery' functions. A Windows installation creates several partitions.

    You can create a Macrium system image (great you're using disk imaging!) including all these partitions with check boxes already ticked by selecting
    Backup, Windows Backup

    many thanks for the reply
    i just made a image/backup of the drive all seems well althogh i was hopeing to clean things up first, but after rethinking it s probably better to do it now and then work from there

    You have loads of space on C: - no problem.

    Two ways to clean up:
    1. Run Ccleaner periodically (free)
    2. Disk clean-up (Rt click a drive, Properties, General)

    Your C:/ drive is clean enough, that's only one to worry about space wise.
