  1. Fictional F: drive


    I tried to install Ubuntu on my flash drive, but I had to reboot in the middle of the process. Then something weird happened with the drive. Instead of being discovered as one drive, Windows also 'connects' a fictional F: drive, which 'has problems' and needs to be formatted. Do you have any idea what might have happened?

  2. f drive

    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?
