Hi Bangzy , 

 

This is a normal ideal OEM partitions . 

 

First two partitions ( EFI System Partition and Windows operating system partition), is required by Windows.

 

The 3rd Lenovo D: and 4th Recovery partition goes together as your drivers folder and data drive.

 

The larger Recovery Partition is the Lenovo created partition 19.51GB that contains the One Key Recovery image goes with OEM created partition . 

 

Similar to this discussion to explain more in details about each :  

 

In a UEFI/GPT lenovo machine, this is the usual layout of the partitions:

 

1.) WINRE_DRV 1000MB OEM - this is the Windows Recovery Environment - this has it's own interface / it doesn't need the 7th partition to operate
2.) SYSTEM_DRV 260MB System - check this thread

3.) LRS_ESP 1000MB OEM- The third partition is the EFI System partitionwhich is used for data storage for the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) interface
4.) (blank) 128MB MSR - The fourth partition is the Microsoft Reserved Partition which is also used for data storage for the Globally Unique Identifier (GUID).
5.) Windows8_OS 884.2GB Primary - Windows 8 OS
6.) LENOVO 25GB Primary - this contains the Application and Drivers that are preloaded on the OS (the drivers listed on this folder are also available on the lenovo website)
7.) PBR_DRV 20GB OEM - this is your recovery partition - you will need to press the One Key Recovery button to activate this partition.

 

For approximation of the 1 TB hdd : (885 + 26 + 20 = 931 GB)

885 GB Windows C: drive (590GB free space?)  

26 GB  D: Lenovo drivers ( this only serves asa backup of your original drivers just in case you don't have internet to download from support site that you can delete ).

20GB  Recovery Partition ( One key recovery factory reset if things get corrupted this will reformat and reimage the harddrive back to how you first receive it.) 

 

A 1Tb disk is actually only 1000.000.000.000 byte, which equals 0,9 Tb (931 Gb) in actual data size and is different on how harddrive manufacturer labels  .  Check here for further details . 

 

Hope this help answer your query. 

 

Regards

Hi Bangzy , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Best way to check on how data partition is managed on your harddrive is using disk management tools under Computer management. You can type diskmgmt.msc when you open the run box (Win key + r) as described on this guide.

 

Standard Lenovo partition would appear similar to this , as a recovery partition would be hidden within the harddrive to store the factory reset image as emergency backup restore . 

 

You may update us with a snapshot to compare if needed. 

 

Regards

Hi Bangzy , 

 

I would not suggest that you delete any of those partitions at the moment and it would better you you can show a screenshot to better assess the partitions

 

Changes on the partitioning would disrupt One Key Recovery feature of the machine and would cause failure to restore the pc to the factory built image if need arise.
