    Difference between C: drive and F: drive


    Hi all,I'm new to Windows 11 after using MacOS and I was hoping I could get some help understanding the difference between the C: drive and the F: on my computer and if there was a way to "transfer" the storage from one to the other. I got this PC purely for gaming and my C: drive is pretty much maxed out 105 GB used with 5.26 GB free. I went into Disk Management and I noticed there was an F: drive with a capacity of 465 GB with most of it remaining. This may be a dumb question, but is there a way to move some of the storage capacity from the F: drive to my current C: drive? Alternatively, i

    :)

    Hello Kathy,

    Based on the information you have provided in your post; we need to do further investigation. To assist you better, we'd like to know the following:

    • Have you tried using a third party software to manage the disk partition?
    • Did you format the drive?

    We suggest that you check for the drive in the Disk Management and look if it appears. Follow these steps:

    • Log on as administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
    • Press Windows+R key and type diskmgmt.msc and then click OK.
    Look if the Drive F: appears and check if it is unallocated.

    Looking forward to your update.

    Windows 10 missing F drive

    Followed all steps as directed. diskmgmt,msc does not list F: drive and none of the unallocated drives is large enough to be my F: (Samsung SM-G920V). Any brighter ideas?
