Windows 7: Disk Management properties seem incorrect

Disk Management properties seem incorrect

I recently re-installed Windows 7. I have 2 internal drives and the drives properties seem incorrect in disk management.

The System drive's properties are listed as
Disk 1 (Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)

The data drive's properties are listed as
Disk 0 (System, Active, Primary Partition)

I believe the System drive should have System as one of it's properties

...and the data drive should not have System, Active as properties.

Should I change these properties and how can these properties be changed? Also the Disk number are reversed. Should the disk numbers be corrected also?

Post a picture of Windows Disk Management to avoid confusion.

We need to see info at the partition level, not drive level.

I'd guess you have a System Reserved partition on the data drive.

Open disk management and expand it so we can see the top and bottom portions of the window. Click the start button and type snipping tool, open the snipping tool. In the top left corner next to New click the arrow and select window. Go to the top of the page and click. In the window click file and save as. Save it to someplace easy to find, such as your desktop. In yout reply here, the top of the reply box, click the paperclip icon, click browse and select the file you just made, click upload, and when it is finished uploading close the window. In the reply box click the paperclip icon and you will see the file you uploaded, select it and it will insert it into the post.

Both drives seem to have one partition each.

Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

Look at the above link.

I think you need to mark the J drive inactive and then comply with that link to get your system files moved over to the C drive.
