    local disk f


    This looks like the F: drive is the EFI partition having a size of 300MB. Open Admin Command (Win+X->Command Prompt (Admin)) and type:
    diskpart
    select disk 0
    list partition =====> take a note of the partition # having 300MB. My guess is partition 2
    select partition # =====> replace # with the number in step above
    remove =====> remove the drive letter
    exit

    This should remove the drive letter and won't show up in "This PC"

    P.S
    do not delete this partition, you won't be able to boot.

    Help with hard disk "corruption"


    The information about clone versus image was to report the problem related to disk signatures. If you are not experiencing that problem then you can move on to other steps. It was not a suggestion to clone or not clone. It was to report an unforeseen problem that can occur.

    If you are able to run chkdsk /x /f /r on the drive it can place files on parts of the drive where there are no bad blocks.

    Windows 10 missing F drive

    Hi Judy,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    We regret for the inconvenience caused. Let us know some more details:

    • Have you used any third part software to manage Disk partition?
    • Did you format the drive?
    • Have you performed a Clean Install?
    I suggest you to check for the drive in Disk Management and see if it appears there. Follow the 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.
    See if the drive F: appears and does it appear as unallocated?

    Get back to us with the information and we'll be glad to assist.
