    Without being able to look into it right now, is there an option to hide when you right click on the drive and go to properties?

    PLEASE, make a restore point first before you do the following.


    Go to Start screen > type Computer > right click at This PC ( or Computer ) > select Manage > left panel, click Disk Management > wait for it to load > right click at System Reserved G > select Change Drive Letter or Paths > highlight G > select Remove > OK

    Note : If you receive error messages that the drive might be in use or that programs might not run correctly, don't panic. It is OK to remove the drive letter. Once a letter is not assigned, the drive will not appear in windows explorer.

    Hmm, I can's see any reserved drive. Could be mine drive D: that came as "Recovery" drive?

    I don't see the operating system installed on them, but this drive is only 24 GB and the computer continuously reminds be to make a restoration disk set in order to delete this partition, what I must admit scares me because I don't know if this space will be lost, merged with C: or what.

    I would just leave it alone, @MyDigitalpoint , though I would make a backup copy of the files on that drive.

    It never hurts to make too many backups.
