Strange Partition Setup

Recommended Posts

Richard C.

Since I did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro I've noticed a strange partition setup, is this normal, I've never seen this many partitions on any empty drive before.


When I did previous installs, and image based installs I've not seen (or looked for) this number of partitions.


This is the first time I've used secure boot on a pc I built myself so maybe this is related?

That's a normal partition config when installing windows 10 onto a GPT drive. 


Recovery -> Recovery tools

EFI -> Boot files

C -> Main drive

MSR -> MS Reserved Space - I think this is sometimes used for in-place upgrades

Like others have said, that's normal.  My C drive is the old MBR style so I have everything but the EFI partition.
