    disc management


    Hi, have just started using my new Lenovo pc, no problems, but am confused by all partitions on "c" drive. (See attachment). Do I need all of them, if not how do I delete safely. Thanks

    I see no problems, the 350mb partition after C: is the updated Windows 8.1 tool partition.

    The Lenovo Recovery Partition.

    Have you made the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

    information   Information

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD. (Windows 8 only)

    Would say the 1000mb & 500mb are the Lenovo tools & Windows 8 RE tools Recovery Partition. (not the Windows 8.1 tools)

    (OEM partitioning not Lenovo)
