Windows 7: How to free up unlabeled 100MB space on HDD

How to free up unlabeled 100MB space on HDD

i have a reformated HDD that previously contained WinXP. When I installed Win 7 couple of years ago I retained the old drive until I could remove other data from it. That has all been done. The drive has been reformatted, but used space is 100MB. I suspect it was set aside for Win 7 System Reserved space.
How can force that space to be freed?
