The reason she could write files there is because it has a letter, the SR partition is not suppose to have a letter.

How did it ever get a letter ?

You can leave it as is.
Or you can delete the SR partition and use Partition Wizard to extend C to the left to reclaim the space, but it`s only 100 MB so that choice is up to you.

A while back I ran into a problem with a corrupted Net 2.0 install. I found an internet blog article where the guy made a typo (something I later discovered when reading the comments, but after already trying the article instructions). Needless to say I had to work with some undelete software and it took a long while to fix. During that time I used a Windows Repair Disc and after one of its "auto fix" options was applied, I then had that system reserved, complete with drive letter. Though I later got in and changed the drive letter to "S".

Hi,
Why does system reserved have a drive letter "s" added to it ?
It should not have a drive letter :/
