Strange drive in "MyDefrag" window

I use "MyDefrag" instead of MS "Defrag"

My Toshiba laptop lists a strange drive in "MyDefrag"

Its probably a Recovery partition from Toshiba.

The drive identification is the GUID, a number that Windows uses to uniquely identify the drive internally. I don't know for sure what the drive is for or why it is being displayed but you should not defrag or modify it in any way. Strictly hands off.
