In System Protection under Available Drives (System Reserved)

I need help on how to remove the (system reserved) folder under Available Drives in protection settings. On all my other computers it is not shown. Not sure why it is there as it does not show anywhere else on computer as a drive. I guess it just bugs the hell out of me not knowing why it's there. Any help would be appreciated.

Look in Disk Management and see if the Reserve has a partition letter.

I knew some one would ask that lol. No drive letter on the system reserved partition. It is a 1.57 GB partition on Disk 0. The other partition is the c: drive at 222.00 GB's.

No you haven't stumped everyone. Slow down a bit. It's only been 32 minutes.
We have a quarter million members and someone will have the answer.

Post a screen print of Disk Management, here is a tutorial by Golden:

It is a 1.57 GB partition on Disk 0.
1.57 GB is an "unusual" size for a System Reserved partition, they are usually 350 MB or less.

Is it a drive or a folder ?

Don't start multiple threads for the same issue brelaw11, it's against the rules,

It just creates confusion as well.
