Windows 7: Cloning c drive and system reserved partion

Cloning c drive and system reserved partion

Hi guys

I installed a new ssd drive and cloned my c drive onto it. It also cloned my system reserved partion [about 25 megabytes].
I then, at a later date, cloned my c drive [now my new ssd drive] again back to my old primary drive so that i have an up to date copy of my primary drive. But it also cloned my system reserved partion. Can i delete some of these system reserved partions. I now have 3 of them! It makes my computer look very untidy. What ones should i leave or do i need to leave them all?

Did you use the native Windows 7 imaging tool or some other software like Macrium? It would help if you could post a maximized screenshot of your Disk Management.
