this is from my new Acer, seems to be something like a system partition made by acer, maybe for recovery or what? but is it save to delete it? will it void my warranty or something like that? maybe i'll do a full HDD backup... what software is good for this? backup the whole HDD

Can't say that i have ever seen a machine with two before, but they are normally the hdden partition which contains either the factory restore partition and or diagnostics. Accessible from boot up by pressing some function key normally.

I'm familiar with them, just never seen a machine with two before. Dell and IBM/Lenovo both used them extensively in XP. Dell for diagnostics, IBM for diags and restore. Why Acer would need two is beyond me. But after 9 years of desktop and hardware support of any system from Acer to Zenith I'm glad to have spent the last 2 years doing desktop only support on systems I built the image for. Then when a user (read student/staff/faculty member) messes something I just backup the data and drop an image back on. No more playing with every manufacturers idea of the perfect scenario.

the warranty should be fine. If you call for support you may get "we can't help you because you changed the os" response but it should have no effect on the warranty.

if you are going to run with the installed os I'd just leave them, what's 13gb when you've got nearly 300gb? If you are going to reload then blow them away.
