    I've dual booted win10 with 8.1, I decided to delete win10 and make a clean install of the latest build, I went to Disk management and I found many partition more than it was before installing win10 in the first place.
    these partitions are for restoring, how to manage them? how can I know which are for win8? and which are for win10?

    thank you in advanced!

    I'd actually like to suggest that you return to your original installation via backup media or even the original restore dvds (I hope you did back-up your files). This sort of stuff is not really for the generic standard user and, if you still DO want to test Windows 10, there's plenty of tutorials out there for installing and using Hyper-V.

    Using that tool you can either delete unnecessary partition or merge them to make a single partition.

    Place your critical files onto a backup device and clean install Windows 8.1 either from a backup or restore media. Other than that you'll need a modern type of partition manager (I used to use Partition Magic years back).

    Thanks for help, but it seems I'm not clear about what I want.I want to know which partitions are for Win 10 which I uninstalled ?

    You can merge them by with Disk Management.
    Right click "My Computer" and choose "Manage" -> "Storage" -> "Disk Management".

    Or you can use some partition tool, recommend EaseUS Partition Master.
