Partitions in Windows 10 and what do they mean

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all, I am curious as to why some of my drives have repeated partitions and others have Healthy (Recovery Partition) on them. Just for looking nice purposes, I would like to delete some partitions, but not sure if that's the best thing to do. I have attached a screenshot of my drives and there partitions. E is a Sata SSD and C is a nvme drive. D is a HDDm

You don't want to remove partitions from the C drive that will likely corrupt your windows and make it unbootable. And your E drive labeled QCK storage appears to be linked to your C drive. If it is setup in raid removing the partitions would have the same effect as removing them from C. Does it show three separate drives in the This PC tab in file explorer or does it only show two? 

Your BBY STORAGE D drive is fine.

You're not going to see this unless you purposefully go into disk management to see it, so it would be pointless to remove the partitions just to make it "look nice".

Unless you want to corrupt your Windows don't delete any partitions.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.
