    "DummyDir" File In D: Drive


    Hello Microsoft Community,

    I am using a Dell Inspiron 5570 and I have a D drive that has free space and I would like to put some files on it, however I noticed a folder named "DummyDir" and I was wondering if it is OK to delete that folder, so I can put my files on my D drive. The folder has no files in it.


    Thanks.

    :)

  2. D drive

    Hi,

    Based on the details you have provided us, it appears that there might be some corrupted contents on the said partition. We can also consider that this is caused by a virus.

    For us to check if a certain virus is hiding your files, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Type Command prompt in the search bar.
    • Type-in the following command:

      attrib -h -r -s /s /d D:\*.*
    • Press Enter to execute the command.

    If you think that there is nothing important stored in it, then we suggest that you reformat your D drive so that you can use the free space for important files.

    You can follow the steps below to start with the process:

    • Click on the File Explorer.
    • Select This PC.
    • Right-click on your D drive, then click on Format.

    Not enough space on Recovery (D"DummyDir" File In D: Drive :) drive.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Please help me with the following:

    1. What is the make and model number of your Computer?


    Please note that recovery "D" is a partition on the hard drive which contains the image of the Operating system. You can use it to restore the computer back to factory settings. You should not attempt to store files in it.
    If you have any data saved on the D drive, I would suggest you to move it to an external drive and to free up some space, you can follow the steps provided in the article:
    Free up drive space in Windows 10.



    If you are using a HP computer, then you can refer to this article:
    HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - What is the Recovery (D"DummyDir" File In D: Drive :) Hard Drive?



    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking on Yes or No.
