Does Disk Management Look Correct

I've been reading several posts that refer to disk management, active partitions, etc.
I'm really clueless on this topic so, I'm wondering why the "System Reserve" is marked active rather than C:\ ?

Hello Bej,

Yes, it is normal for the "System Reserved" partition to be marked "Active". An active partition on a basic disk means that the computer will use the loader (an operating system tool) on that partition to start/boot the operating system.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
