    Strange small unallocated partition in Windows 10


    Ok, so for my hard drive... it's been a wild ride...

    I first started partitioning my 2TB SATA Hard Drive for Hackintosh with multiple formats, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and a few disk checks...

    Recently I just deleted the other partitions and combined them into my Windows 10 Creators Update. Now I spotted a small unallocated space I want to get rid of. Not the system reserved that Windows creates, but a small unallocated space that bugs the hell outta me. If you kind folks here at Ten Forums could help me that would be appreciated. Thank you. Here are my specs. I also attached a screenshot.

    [Dell Optiplex 780
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    8 GB RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 610
    Hitachi 2TB SATA Hard Drive with 7200RPM]

    You always get that. It is usually not even seen. It is simply the last bit of space that does not align properly with zone segment/boundaries as disks are not exact fit in total. Just ignore it.

    It could also be a spare space for moving eventual bad sectors and also shouldn't show up.
