Unknown Drive in computer managment

hello!

In my computer managment I have a volume that have no clue what's on it. its 1G and 823MB are used. See snap shot its the * volume. Any clue what this is? Can I delete it?

Drive D: use to be a recovery section which I formated so I can dual boot XP & Win 7.

Hi Dan and welcome

I suspect ( i cant really see) the volume is an XP volume. if you are dual booting you need to be careful. When win 7 is dual booting XP it puts a hidden folder called boot. thats where the ntldr amd other files are. You can click show all look in the volume and see if there is a folder called boot.

If you upload a bigger pic im sure someone will give you a hand

Thanks
