    I am running Windows 7 Professional 64bit. I have an SSD C: partition. One Harddrive with a D partition. Another Harddrive with a F: partition. I have noticed that I have an H: partition with $UpgDrv$ file that contains the letter F. I have started to backup my C: drive onto F:. Would this be the cause of the System Reserved Partition H:?
    What is in this? How can I look into it(probably for fun)?
    Thanks

    Google wasn't very helpful, but the common threads seemed to be that people that had this file either had upgraded Windows or were using Acronis. If either of those things describe you, that might be a clue.

    Post a pic of your Disk Management console (diskmgmt.msc from run/command line). That should tell you/us pretty much everything you need to know about what you got.
