So I have never really needed to partition my internal hard drive of this dell notebook. It’s a 80db 5400rpm drive, and it serves me very well for all my recording needs. I rarely do any multitracking, 90% of what I do is just recording to a 2 channel stereo .wav file, and even with a sampling rate of 48 kHz and bit depth of 24 (CD audio is 44.1 kHz and 16 bits) the thing has never flinched. However, I am conscious of my space and although I have a very big usb drive for backups, I would prefer not to record to it (although I have tried it and it works surprisingly well) OK. So today I am partitioning my usb drive with partition magic (one partition is my backup disc image) and I notice this weird partition on my main internal hard drive. Here it is again through windows XP disk manager. So…what is it? What happens if I delete it and merge it with my main partition? Why is it full? What could it be full off? Did dell put that there? I know its only 3 gigs, but it just seems wrong to have 3 gigs just sitting there and not using it.
