Have you tried to permanently hide it-- you can use Gpedit.msc

Administrative Templates> Windows Components > WindowsExplorer
then look for the hide specific drives
click enable

then choose the drives


Now yes I have read everything ....
You keep trying to change something as an Administrator that is managed by SYSTEM.

I suggest since you are having hibernation problems-- to follow my link --
the one about removing the hibernation file- then defragmenting- then re-creating the hibernation file- it is possible the one there already is corrupted
-

Once again you are NOT reading; That partition has ALWAYS been hidden. ALWAYS. It has never magically appeared. The only thing that happens to it is that its label is erased, nothing more.

PLEASE read before replying....

I did and have read-- you said you keep setting that label and it keeps changing it- (I would also suggest that you possibly consider an outside source as in OS) to reset the label- then use the suggested form of the GPEDIT.MSC to hide it.

Now let me tell you why I suggested that-- And this is why what I said use it...

GPEDIT.MSC runs at SYSTEM level and not ADMIN LEVEL for the hiding of drives.

Therefore any changes would stick.

So by hiding it using that it will stop any changes that system can do to it.

AND YOU SAY I HAVE NOT READ... instead I have only suggested ways to fix your issue....

Your initial post said that you could not hibernate because of this problem-- Instead I suggest ways to fix that initial post.. I have three machines with Windows 7 on them... two the partition does have a label and one that does not - and the one that does not has no issues with hibernation. (which is why I suggested) removing the hibernation file and re-creating it.

But you say I did not read what you wrote...

I only suggested things to fix your issue

In GPEDIT.MSC I see no question that allows me to hide the disk.

The HDD is pretty recently formatted but Im going to do the defrag anyways....

In the Local Group Policy Editor window, navigate to
User Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> Windows Explorer in the right side panel.



On the left, scroll down the list to find ‘Hide these specified drives in My Computer’.

Double click on this entry to open the setting.

Just make sure before you defrag-- to do the option of turning off hibernation first..

That way it will remove the one that is giving you problems- then create a new one- it is possible the one there is corrupted.

The system reserved partition can be labeled anything. I do many installs by booting to windows pe, creating the partitions with diskpart and deploying a wim file with imagex. In fact, the system reserved partition is optional. You can install Windows on a single partition no problem.
That drive is there for compatibility with other OSes, and for drive encryption.
Basically you have another issue if you can't hibernate.

Thus the reason I suggested turning it off....(hibernation) so that it will remove the current Hyberfile.sys

Followed by
DeFragmentation

Then turning it back on-
So the system will then create a new Hyberfile.sys

Next-
Hiding the drive through GPEDIT.MSC (to make sure it is not available)

Also suggested shrinking the partition and creating a new one to move the page file to that new drive.

I have found this fixed an issue with a friends system and hibernation- (somehow the location of the page-file was affecting hibernation)

can you please show us a screen shot of this changed label? Pictures are always better than words. The hibernate file is on the C drive is it not, not sure what that partition would have to do with anything other than this is normally where your boot files are. What error do you get in the event log when you try and hibernate?

Hello

As you know Windows 7 makes a System Reserved partition which is called "System Reserved". It does not have any drive letter assigned. Sometimes I cannot hibernate my PC because this partition removes its label "System Reserved" and changing it to "". To fix it I have to assign a driver letter to it (making it visible) then remove the drive letter. THEN I can hibernate.

Why does this happen and how can make it permanently "System Reserved" with no drive letter and hidden?

Thank you


Why not just delete the reserved partition, reclaim the space, and calibrate the drive alignment if needed. There are only a couple of very specific Windows tasks that could use that partition.

Did the defrag thing that was suggested and the label is still being removed.

Ran MBAM and MSE (this time I finished it) and it found nothing.

Next time it happens Ill screenshot it.

As you wish :)

This is working (showing the label and hibernate works):

Found this on hibernation issues- Seems as if in some systems it gets set 75 which is not enough for some systems causing random hibernation issues.

Change the registry setting HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\HiberFileSizePercent to 100.

Rebooted. Now hiberfile size is 100% of RAM size. Hibernation now works.

You don't happen to have any 3rd party boot managers or an antivirus that protects the boot partition, do you?

Also, what type of Windows install is this? OEM, Retail or Volume License?
