    The problem with Adam's post is it is not for your UEFI-GPT system, But rather MBR

    Please open command prompt(admin)

    type> diskpart
    type> list volume
    type> select disk 0
    type> list partition

    post a pic of prompt windows

    It's OK - I was only asking you to display things. Don't change things if you don't want to.

    And then select partition and detail partition. It is just more info. KYHI is right - I am using a hybrid MBR/EFI partitions scheme (not a standard EFI) but your information of the partition types may be interesting.

    It might not be interesting (I could be wrong) but you are only displaying a bit more info

    Not being that computer literate, can you tell me what the results of this will be? Will this remove the partitions from appearing in file explorer without affecting the actual partitions, of course.

    Thank you, KYHI!

    type> gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001

    in that command 8 tells the system the drive is required by the system and 1 hides the drive by removing the drive letter

    Diskpart was showing the drive letter assignment - which was not showing in Disk management

    ================
    type> set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac

    that id tells the system it is recovery data - Yours already has that ID - so not really needed to do - but won't hurt either..

    Entered all the strings and Diskpart reported the changes were successfully made. Next, I pressed the Enter key and typed exit. Rebooted but not seeing any change. See attachment.

    Should I have rebooted without typing Exit?

    Okay, I think I'll try uninstalling Macrium and see how that looks. I certainly appreciate the time you've spent on this and will post back with any new information.
