I agree with that Kelly. I have 8 SSds and thought I had done about everything you could do with or to one, and have helped on at least 100 SSD threads. But, I have never seen anything like this. Just when you thought you'd seen everything......

EDIT: COMPUTIAC, have you ever run sfc /scannow?

I was saying, if it is the active partition, that means windows is booting from it. If you simply delete it, windows will not boot. But, you wrote the tutorial of how to delete it and get windows to boot from the C partition. Is that not correct?

Computiac, do you remember exactly what you did with the partition program?

Well, I'll be darned, you're right, as usual. It must be the hat that confused me. Change hats, I'm easy to confuse.

Found the disk I burned, it is Partition Wizard Mini tool.

The date on it is 3.24.13 which means I used this when I moved the OS from the HDD to the SSD on the old HP machine.

I did not use it on the clean install of the new machine at all. Sorry for the confusion on that.

There was a problem after doing the first clean install, I lost some functions and could not get them back for some reason.

Then I did a second clean install, because I did not have a repair disk at the time, and have been on it since. It did create a Windows Old file, which I deleted.

So maybe there is really nothing on the 96MB partition since it shows as empty ?

No worries, that is a great tut. I read on Toms hardware someone similar issue but cant find the link in my history

I think with the contiguous space note a clean install will fix it. I say that again because that is usually a last resort in my recommendations. However others may know a fix without doing that

Found it

the post by Ramsdal, but I would never defrag a SSD

My fix is a clean install and not have the 100MB partition, I've never had one. But that tut will do the same thing, if he has no other problems.

I would run all available rounds of Important and Optional Updates after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3) to see if Win7 offers drivers it prefers.

But if you replaced drivers Win7 wanted during install like in XP then it may be too late. Win7 is a driver-complete OS in the installer and via Windows Updates, so the best rule of thumb is only to supply missing drivers after all rounds of Updates are finished. Then wait to see if performance points to any problem drivers.

There are other tips in Clean Reinstall that apply to retail as well as OEM, compiling the tools and methods which have worked best for tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here. So if you varied much from those methods I would consider reinstalling. It can't hurt and might help.

In your case I would first wipe the SSD with Diskpart Clean Command as scripted in Step 2 of SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation which provides every partitioning advantage for you while leaving out the System Reserved partition which looks dodgy in your screenshot.
