Too many partitions?

    Question

  • I have Windows 8.1 and since getting this laptop, I've re-installed it a few times and now I have the following showing in the upper portion of Disk Management:

    NO DRIVE LETTER: RECOVERY (650 mb) (100% free)
    NO DRIVE LETTER: EFI (260 mb) (100% free)
    C: NTFS (441.71 gb) (74% free)
    D: RECOVERY OEM (NTFS) 23.4GB (11% free)
    D: RECOVERY OEM 23.4GB (11% free)

    Lower Level Shows:

    4 partitions

    NO DRIVE LETTER: RECOVERY
    NO DRIVE LETTER: EFI
    C: NTFS
    D: RECOVERY OEM (NTFS) 23.4GB (11% LEFT)

    My question is, why so many partitions and drives??  Why is the recovery partition so large and almost full?  I've had this for about 7 months...

    Thanks in advance!
