Is anyone able to provide a quick run down of what all these different partition are for (please refer to attachment) ? Many thanks in advance if anyone is able to throw some light on the situation.
I'm about to clone my disk and I'd like to know if I need to include all of these.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You should clone over all partitions.
D - holds copy of backup drivers and possible location for Lenovo Rescue system backup
Winre- windows standalone Recovery Environment
Lenovo_part - Lenovo Rescue system
OEM partition -1000 MB probably related to Lenovo Rescue system

OK - so I finally got round to cloning my drive. I went from 1TB HD to a 500GB SSD using AOEMI Backupper. For some reason the OEM partition ( see attached ) wasn't included in the cloning process and when I installed the newly cloned SSD it failed to boot. I opened a separate thread for this issue here :
Any idea why the OEM partition wasn't copied and is it important?

We've checked on the AOEMI Backupper cloning software and there is an option to clone sector by sector. That's the time that you would be able to copy all the partition.
