first thought is that it is not formatted and just extra disk space.
second thought is it is swap space.
neither of those explain why is says "SavetoDisk."

if your pc did not come with a windows xp disc then there should be a recovery disc the only reason i ask is usually if they come with a recovery disc the manafacturer will put hidden or unusal partitions on your hard disc with recovery data on it and i thought this mat be the unusual bit of partition aand pq magic sees it but is unsure what it is.
