Windows 7: "Unsee" System Reserved in Explorer

"Unsee" System Reserved in Explorer

This used to not show in Windows Explorer,
I have since attempted a "Repair Install" (failed), then got MBAM working, and cleaned the system.
Used a couple of other apps (including MSSE) and they find nothing.
Don't know if all that matters.
But now System Reserved shows up in Windows Explorer. Strictly speaking, it shouldn't.

It's probably been given a drive letter, you can remove it so it won't show in explorer,

Used Partition Wizard to remove the drive letter and it worked.
Thanks

Hey guys, not to be, like, super annoying or anything (w/bumping this thread), but WHY use a 3rd party tool when Windows Disk Management is perfectly capable of handling this task.. Just like derekimo had originally linked.

Partition Wizard is a better program to use than Disk Management in my opinion. You could use either. Just like backing up, Windows Backup can be used but I use Macrium Reflect as I feel it is a better backup product.
