    Too Many Partitions, and I don't know who made it.


    When I was just looking at my disk manage management screen I see this:

    I would leave then as they are.

    Not clear to me what the 350mb partition is, unless you upgraded from 8/.0 to 8.1 ?

    Do not delete any of those partitions. They were created by the manufacturer.
    Disk manager may seem to indicate that these partitions are empty but don't be fooled. These are not normal Windows partitions and Windows doesn't understand them.

    8.1 also creates a couple on top of the ones that were made when the OEM install was done. Just leave as is.

    But if I leave them as it is, can I still create more partitions?
    If yes, how many?

    As many as you like really depending if you mean logical or primary - see here..

    windows - What is the maximum number of partitions that can be made on a hard drive? - Super User

    I've found to my cost that having too many partitions degrades system performance - I think it is better to let windows take care of disk management but many disagree with that I expect

    Up to 128 primary partitions with GPT, All new partitions need to be after the Windows 8.1 350mb Repair Tool Partition.
