Windows 7: What is that "other" partition on my drive for?

What is that "other" partition on my drive for?

(Sorry for the vague title.)
When I got my system, it had the standard C: drive and another partition, the S: drive. It is 1.46 GB, but is 44% free space. Lenovo's tech support could not give me a clear description of what it's used for, but they were adamant that I not remove it.

What is it? While it get destroyed if I try to fresh install Windows7? Can (or should) I destroy it if I reinstall Windows 7?

Can't you attach a screen shot of the drive content while it open with explorer?

If you are going to reinstall 7, you should get rid of it and let seven create it's own partition.

That is a leftover from your Vista, I would follow the advice in your other thread,
