    New drive letter on update


    After this last update suddenly I have a new G drive which wasn't there before, only 448Mb with only 4Mb space left. Wondering where this drive came from, what is on it (shows empty), and if formatting it (to get rid of the low space warnings) will hurt anything.
    It's not the recovery drive, that shows. Any idea where this came from?
    Thanks

    :)
