Looks like a manufacturer's default restore partition to me.
It contains something. Have you explored the drive via disk management what it has in it?
I am surprised it's NTFS. Hmmm...
Looks like you are Windows 7 or Vista, right?

At 9GB I would not waste my time worrying about it. Best leave it alone.
I would be interested to know why you have compressed the first disk which has hardly anything on it. Decompressing slows things down unless you need to save space. Even if you need to save space purchasing a second internal or external disk is a much better choice.

He's got Vista.
Follow the steps under the heading "Delete Your Linux Partitions" heading for the 9.92 GB partition. If it's empty, it's useless.

Current price per GB of HDD space is ten cents. Not worth the effort to save a dollar.

Hi I must have accidentally checked off the compression on that box before I took the screen shot because I rechecked it and its now not compressed .

You'd be surprised how much a dollar can mean for some people here.

Hi , I'm getting like Columbo on TV
should leave well enough alone as they say because isn't 9.99GB in my D not much as compared to the amount in my C drive which is 206 GB of free space, how ever I noticed that I have used 12.7 GB just for the basics in the system, and what I was thinking on the line of -If I could gain another 9.99 GB from the D drive will it reduce the used space to 12.7 minus - the 9.99 GB to a total of only approximate 4. GB or its doesn't work that way? let me know- thanks again

What do you mean? Be clear.

Not true. Your used space will still be 12.7 GB because that is how much space your files take up. Adding more free space to your C: partition will not change how much space your data occupies, however it will increase your free space that is available.

OK thank you for the correct answer ,so leave well enough alone as they say
