    Extra partitions created by Windows 10


    I downloaded the iso and installed 10 over 7, doing the clean install option instead of an upgrade. After everything setup, I noticed some extra partitions were created that 7 did not have. Both are on my main C: drive. One is 450 MB labeled "Recovery Partition". After that on the same drive is a 16 GB primary partiton. What are these for? I can guess that maybe the recovery partition has to do with backups, but what is the 16 GB partition after for? Both of them currently show as empty right now. Also, I noticed that my System Restore has been assigned a letter (D*Smile. This was not normally done in previous versions. Is there a reason for it now, or could I remove it and assign D: to my data drive? I'm attaching a screenshot to show what I mean.
