Windows 7: Remove System Reserved Partition+Partition Wizard

26 Nov 2011   #11
C-11

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
 
 

Internet went down or I would've been back sooner.

Alright, that fixed it!

Created an image & restored from the same image & had 63% free on Sys Reserved partition.

Thanks Greg!

Anyone else doing this I would suggest you check the filesystem on C: after doing this sort of operation. It may or may not need an auto fix.

Partition Wizard checks the file system as it Resizes, but it's always a good idea to run it again once you're into Windows: Disk Check

In fact, Puran Defragger offers a boot-time defrag which includes System Files which can only be defragged at boot, along with a Full Disk Check. It's state of the art: Puran Defrag Free Edition - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

I run it monthly after CCleaner Disk and Registry cleanup: CCleaner - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

I did the precise exercise a couple of days ago using PW V7. When I checked C: Windows wanted to do a filesystem fix. So I let it.

Simply stating an observed fact in my case. Others can take it or leave it.
