Windows 7: Is my A: partition now obsolete?

Is my A: partition now obsolete?

I've recently done a re-imaging of my system, after having a strange re-activation issue which has thankfully now disappeared. This resulted in both the 'boot mgr file and boot folder moving from A: to C: drive - not my original intention. The C: drive is now 'active' showing both both 'boot' and 'system' within the one partition. All that remains in the A: partition are the 'System Volume' and '$Recycle Bin' folders, both of which also happen to reside in the C: drive. Booting up proceeds without any hitch.

Is it safe now for me to remove the A: partition without any further issue occurring?
