Did you split up the ssd into 2 partitions ? (not including the SR partition) Why ?

Could you please post a shot of Disk Management ?

Reason for split was that I hardly use 35 GB for W7 and all apps, does it make a difference in performance, can they be merged?

Here is a screen shot of Disk management.

Thanks.

With an ssd that small, the whole thing should be used for windows.

No hard drives to store data on ?

Have a 320 GB Hard drive for Data.

Should I merge the partitions, any benefits, if yes how can they be merged now?

Hope won't get any errors?

Thanks.

Shall System Reserved and D be merged into one C only, like in the screen shot you posted?

Hi,
Yea Net frame work 4.5.2.. seems to be Important
I have 1 program that needs this weird type of frame work "CorelDraw x6" mostly for it's internet content of which I don't even use but a lot of programs are using .net to deliver internet content.

A couple of the Optional you show might take care of the yellow flag you were referring to
But out of the Optional updates I would load these in green,

Of course Skype and Silverlight is completely up to you,
Don't bother Hiding Silverlight it just shows back up so hiding it really accomplishes nothing
The only company/ s that uses Silverlight is M$ for it's help videos and I believe Netflix to stream content.

Skype is self explanatory you either use it or not of which I don't so I don't load anything Skype related personally.

I thought this was a good example of how to install without the 100mb system reserved partition during install,
SSD installation?

Yea I agree the D partition doesn't make much sense to me either I do limit space on C but I leave the remainder as Unallocated so I can increase C if necessary later.

Your picture does not reveal what is on D--maybe nothing?

What was your intent by having D on the SSD? What did you hope to accomplish?

You can easily do away with D and give that space to C, but we need to understand your motivations. Maybe you had a good reason for D, although I can't imagine what it would be if all data is on the 320 GB external.

What's on D?

You could get rid of System Reserved, but at this point there's no real point to doing that. As previously explained, the best time to avoid System Reserved is before you install Windows.

This is only partially true. It seems to come back because of newer versions being offered. After you hide all the versions, they will not be back until a new version is out. Then you can hide it and be done with it.

Thanks for your expert reply.

For confirming about the Important Update and views about optional ones to install.

I too have a feeling as posted the yellow base device icons are O2 Micro drivers.
