@dc3 you asked for this info
What is the size of the extra partition? 350mb
Where did you see this partition? Windows defrag program,computer management,mini tools partition software
these 2 partition where not on my pc before i upgraded to Windows 8.1 i know for sure i'm not a novice
it was not there when my pc was new in April of this year and before i installed Windows 8.1 i reinstalled back to factory
settings from the HP restore partition so i would not have trouble upgrading got all my updates from microsoft updates ran
check disk sfc/scannow defraged with Windows defrag then installed Win 8.1
and the second one came after i restored my pc back to factory settings from the HP restore partition it was back to Win 8
then i upgraded to Win 8.1 and i got the second one
you also asked for spaccy info
why do you need speccy info for this?? it has my External IP Address wich you do not need??
if you need info from speccy just ask for that info your looking for?
i have found others at Microsofts forums,Windows 8 forums that have the same partitions and wonder what thay are so i thought
i would post what i have found and has happend to my pc in the hopes someone could shed some light on what has happend with these
partitions and why i got 2 after i restored and reinstalled Win8.1
