So it won't matter if you hide it, cause it's still there.
He's not DELETING it
System Recovery and System Reserve are two totally different things.
By default Windows 7 creates a system reserve partition that is Usually at the front of the drive and is hidden, IE No Drive letter.
A System Recovery Partition is installed by the manufacturer and can hold some diagnostic program and usually a Restore Image.
The OP said they Installed Win 7 32bit
, why 32bit I don't know (I certainly wouldn't install that) and it created a D drive that is Labeled System Reserve. It should of been at the beginning of the disk and hidden.
