Windows 7: Windows 7 & 8, need to remove & format Win7 Partition!

System Reserved only contains the boot files which are best deleted with the partition in Disk Mgmt.

It is hardly worth the time to recover 100mb into the adjacent partition, even using our favorite tool here to extend partition easily with Partition Wizard - video help.

Did you delete the System Reserved partition?

Please do so now, then reboot and post back another screenshot of Disk Mgmt.

Please also post a screenshot of where the drives are not appearing because it makes no sense to me.

Hey Greg,

That seems to have fixed it again, the drives weren't appearing in the "this pc" section, as posted last night they're there atleast for now though!

I'll post here again if it vanishes again, its such a strange issue, starting to think it may be more of a bug!

What "This PC" section? Please post a screenshot so we know what you're talking about.
