    i had to restore from a backup using win 8.1
    its all good now but the 300mb reserved partition (h)
    is showing

    i noticed theres several ways to hide it

    delete the letter in disc management
    a registry fix
    group policy

    is anyway better than the others?

    thought so
    but

    having removable drives plugged in

    will it matter once a usb drive is removed?

    or will the system reserved drive still stay h drive

    Usually once it's unassigned then that drive letter is free, especially since you could even choose to reassign that H drive to Z etc
