    I have a toshiba laptop that came with win 7, there were three partitions.
    a) 1.62 gig recovery no drive letter assigned
    b) 7.92 gig Primary partion no drive letter assigned
    c) 288 gig C: boot...

    What is b for? Can I delete it? it looks empty.

    It's most likely a recovery partition. You probably don't want to delete it.
