OS, PBR. Winretools, \\?Volume{ff65a0d0-234e-4472-8a7f-203d111c610f}\

 

That is 4 drives.  The first one is fine, it is at 0%.  The second is at 1%, it is good. 

Winretools shows 12% fragmented, and needs optimization.

The last \\?Volume{ff65a0d0-234e-4472-8a7f-203d111c610f}\ show it is 56% fragmented and needs

optimization.  I don't even know if the last two should be touched, as I don't know what they are.  I never even heard of that last one.  The last two will not let you optimize them.  I can change that, under change settings, but I don't know if this is safe to do, or not.  Please help me on this. Scheduled optimization is set to ON. (frequency weekly)

 

Oh, and I did a search engine search on that, but did not see anything on that 4th one listed.

run this command in command prompt

wmic volume get /all /format:list >> C:\VolumeDetails.txt

That should dump a txt file and give all the information you need, a volume generally doesnt have a mount point like C: or D: does and i would say is your MBR.
