S is just a small partition. It has the bootmenu and bootmanager. Don't know why it's a separate partition.
D is for recovery to factory settings. Restore to factory settings still works? Don't do the actual restore off course!!!!

No the only way to restore to factory settings was off the repair computer option. Which is what I actually trying to do. Backed up all me docs and want to restore to as new. Which when I done in past was through repair computer option on f8

Will have to check on contents of sources when I get home. What I do know is that the program that opened up last time I restored to factory settings is located on d: in tgm if that's any help?
