OS: Windows XP Pro SP2.

most like these are hidden partitions created by the manufacturer, e.g. system recovery, EFI (ASUS netbooks), MediaDirect Partition (Dell only)

But the first time I used MyDefrag (before I had started a defragmentation), they were not there. They only appeared after I had run the defrag a couple of times. – UpTheCreek Nov 9 '09 at 19:15
