It's time for a clean install of my Windows 10 pro. I intend to format the SSD drive that is used for the OS and then install Win 10 again (I use a seperate HDD for storage) When choosing a location I see that there are three partitions on the SSD (Drive 1):
Partitions number 1 and 3 are most likely system reserved partitions. I know this for sure about Drive 1 Partition 1. I have two questions about this situation.
- Can I also format and/or merge system reserved partitions if I intend to do a clean install?
- Is it possible for Drive 1, partition 3 to be a system reserved partition from an earlier installation of Windows? Can I also format and merge this?
