    extra 5I2mb oem partition ?

    Hi, so on my 64 Gb SSD I have 3 partitions - 1st a 100mb NTFS partition called SYSTEM which I guess is boot, then I have my 59Gb NTFS C Drive but then I have a last 512 mb Healthy OEM partition which I dont Know what is for!

    My computer sags that there is no recovery partition so I'm wondering if I can delete this to save Space?

    The computer is a Samsung series 7 slate 700 t. it originally had win 7, than win 8 & now win 8.1

    Any help you can give is much appreciated!

    ( by the way the handwriting recognition rocks on Win 8)

    As you have upgrade Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, 8.1 makes a new System partition with out deleting the old.
