  • What partitions show up in disk manager?

    Is this for WES2009 or WES7? If WES7 do you have bitlocker in the image and is the boot partition?

  • It's WES7 and I have 1 physical SSD with 2 partitions (C: for WES7 and D: for our company stuff).

    No bitlocker since I'm going to use FBWF.

    I think I'm missing "Disk Management" component (by the way, perhaps you know what it is from the top of your head) so can't really look it up in GUI.

    I wonder if it's some "residue" from USB stick I used to throw WES7 image on this computer.

    Thanks!

  • Moved the post to the WES7 forum. Include the first 3 packages under Devices and Printers.

  • Maybe the boot partition? As far as i remember Windows may automatically create a separate boot partition. What does diskpart tell (command line: diskpart -> select disk 0 -> list partition). I will not wonder if three partitions are shown there.

  • I thought so too but I don't see any partitions other than the ones I mentioned above.  I even made sure to manually delete all partitions during setup.

  • Man, it's a strange one.  I installed Disk Management component and as I expected, there's only 1 Disk and 2 Partitions:

    Disk 0

    C: NTFS, System, Boot, Active, Primary Partition

    D: NTFS, Primary Partition

    So what the heck can this be? I'd like to know if this has to be protected by FBWF.  Found something interesting in registry.  I searched for the string I circled in the original post and I found references to this string in these registry locations.  I hope this helps!  Thank you!

  • Do you have the registry filter in the image? If so this might be the RAMdisk for the registry filter.

    It has been a long time since I use the FBWF GUI tool.

    Yes, I do have Registry Filter.  I'm not currently using it and included just in case (will remove if I won't find a need for it).

    So if I find this related to Registry Filter, should this be protected by FBWF?  Thank you very much!

    Edit:  I just noticed in Disk Defrag GUI "REGFDATA" Disk.  Does it basically confirm your suspicion?
