    missing reserved K


    I noticed the "K missing" when I looked at system restore for the reserved partition.

    I then checked with disc management and it was there.

    Please see the attachment to clarify my question.

    Should I do something about this?

    Hey Peter,

    It looks like at one time you had the letter "K" assigned to your "System Reserved" partition, and had turned on system protection for it.

    You can turn off system protection for "K: Missing" to remove it from System Protection.

    removed system resered K


    Thank you, Brink.
    I removed it but all points were removed besides removing K.
    I read your tutorial again and now understand how to do it correctly.
    At least no harm is done and I have created a new point for C .
