Windows 7: System Reserved Files on 3 out of 4 drives

System Reserved Files on 3 out of 4 drives

Greeting All!
Today I installed a M4 64 gig ssd...did a fresh install of the O.S. Loving it...WOW!!
Anyways I have 3 other Drives in there making a total of 4.
3 out of the 4 drives have the 100 meg system reserved on them whilst 1 drive doesn't.
Can I remove them on all but my boot drive the M4?

Are there any other OS's on those other HD's?

If not you can delete the SysReserved partitions in Disk mgmt. since none are marked System therefore holding System boot files. You may have to mark them Inactive first: Partition - Mark as Inactive - Windows 7 Forums

You can reclaim the space by Resizing the adjacent partition using free Partition Wizard bootable CD but it's hardly worth it for 100mb.
