Default Deleted System Reserved Partition

I deleted the system reserved partition on my Data Disk. The data is still ok and the programmes on it are ok. However, I now have 130MB of Unallocated space and no windows system reserved partition. Can I
1) just ignore the unallocated space or
2) backup the data on the disk , reformat and the whole drive and restore the data, or
3) ???? not really sure.
I want to be proactive before something happens. Thanks.

So you still have one on the OS drive? If so, then don't worry about it.

Yes, I do have one on the OS drive. Is it worth making the effort to recover the 130MB ? or just forget it.

Thanks.

I'd just ignore it. The next time you reformat, you can combine the unallocated space with your OS partition.
