Before installing windows 8 there was 4 hard disk partitions on my computer, but after installing windows 8 Local Disk (I:) came up automatically with 99 MB of size thought there's no file inside of that partition.

Can please anyone tell me how that happened and how to hide/remove that partition, because its annoying

Hello Borhan,

Could you post a screenshot showing your full disks layout in Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) to see if that may help reveal a reason? :)

That screenshot of Disk Management is not from the same computer as the one in your first screenshot. Nothing matches up with the 1st screenshot.

It needs to be from the same computer. ;)

Disable "Hide protected operating system files" in Folder Options, then post the screen shot of the Drive Content.

Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide - Windows 7 Forums

That screenshot of Disk Management is not from the same computer as the one in your first screenshot. Nothing matches up with the 1st screenshot.

It needs to be from the same computer. ;)
Oh, I totally forgot, because the Screen shot taken from my office computer and both PC have same issue. So the solution must apply to both.

That's fine, but I'll need to have the screenshots of the "Computer" and "Disk Management" screens to both be from the same computer to be able to compare them to see what the issue may be.

I can't do that if they are from different computers. :)

On your Office computer, it appears H is the normal 350 MB "System Reserved" partition that just got a drive letter assigned to it somehow.

If you like, you could remove the H drive letter from that partition to have it no longer display in Computer without hurting anything. :)

This is most likely the same issue for the I drive on the other computer, but I'll need to see it's Disk Management screen to be certain though.

Yup, from the contents of the drive it is the System Reserved partition with a drive letter assigned.
