    Probably a hidden factory-installed restore partition from Dell.
    You can browse to it with file manager and see what's on it.

    These are small partitions installed at the factory by Dell for restore/utility purposes. Nothing to worry about since you have 286gb free space in your Linux partition!

    The same way you mount anything else. You shouldn't need to, though as those partitions are used by the built-in recovery mode.

    Re: W95 fat32 (lba)

    i have managed to open the partition by luck when i was testing something on ubuntu 13.04 live cd ,
    but i would like to know about these questions :
    1: what is the LBA ( looks like a processor flag as gparted say )
    2: is there differance between ( w95 fat32) and (fat32)
