    Bootsec.exe on root of C:\ drive (Fresh Win7 Ultimate Install)

    Hi all,

    I just finished installing Windows 7 Ultimate X64 on an Asus motherbord, i5 intel. I was checking the root folder my C:\ drive, and I realized that besides the standard folders (Program Files (x86), etc.) there is a file called bootsect.exe

    Why is this there, and can I delete it?

    1) I used Acronis 2014 to wipe my SSD drive (fast)

    2) Installed Windows 7 by choosing the advance option (not the upgrade)

    When I look at my hard drive structure via the Disk Management, I do see the proper (and hidden) 100MB NTFS System Reserved partition, *in addition to* my regular OS.

    Is there anything wrong with this then?

    Thanks for your help.
