I am about to redo three maybe four of my machines all of which have OEM recovery bloat ware partitions.  I am not sure if the old Format C:/S even works anymore, I am looking for a little help purifying the drives.

Just use the OS to do it. Otherwise Format C: is good enough.

Hi I just did my old Dell over with clean XP disks, the partition is still showing in manage.  Not sure what I might be doing wrong.
