OH Smeg

If it's something like 1 or 2 GIG then it's the Recovery Partition and no you don't want to touch it.

If it's a couple of hundred Meg it's the Master Boot Record and writing anything to it will destroy the contents of the HDD itself. Those are the only 2 types of Partition in a Windows System that you can not access and to be quite honest they both should be invisible from within Windows as they are System Critical.

If you have several hundred GIG then something has been done to that Partition to Lock it so what has been done things like Encrypting the partition and that is what I would be considering as a first option.
