Can you access it? Is there anything on it?

Try clicking Start and right-click 'Computer' and select Manage. What shows up under 'Drive Management'?

microsoft have recently been giving away free hard drvies - maybe you were a lucky winner?

seriously though, how big is it? if it's 100MB, then it's probably your reserved boot partition.

That's really bizarr...

You should be able to right-click the 9mb unalocated space and delete it. Then right-click the main drive and 'Extend' it by those 9mb.

I've not known Windows do that without user input

It doesn't give me an option to delete it or do anything with it...
