  1. Remove Drive Z: from File Explorer


    How can I remove the Z drive from appearing in File Explorer?

    I can't access it "You don't currently have permission to this folder", which is fine as its's EFI partition on Disk 0.

    I have tried diskpart "select volume Z" then "remove letter=Z", which works at first, but then Zreappears after reboot.

    I have tried CMD "mountvol Z: /d", but that does nothing?

    It appeared After I tried to combine my 464.72 GB NTFS and 501 MB NTFS partitions using EAseUS.

    Screen shots of File Explorer, Disk Manager and EaseUS showing the issues.

    Many thanks

    :)

    Recover files on Z drive

    Did you solve your problem? It looks like I have a similar one. I have an external drive that was somehow mapped to a Z drive in Windows 10. Problem is, I didn't realize what had happened, and took out the external drive, and now the drive is corrupt.
    Any suggestions on recovering what was in the Z drive would be helpful, as I can no longer see it now. Thanks!
     
  3. I am unable to access the Local Drive Z. Please help.

    Drive Z is not a malware it's a Microsoft hidden partition for booting the computer, for some reason it becomes visible at times. You can try rebooting your computer and see if it hides Drive Z again. If not, you can try the following steps
    below:

    • Type CMD on start menu to open Command Prompt.
    • Type Diskpart and hit Enter.
    • Click Yes if you are prompted with UAC (User Account Control)
      dialog-box.
    • Type List Volume and hit Enter.
    • Select the drive that you want to hide, type Select Volume Z
      or Select Volume 8 (change 8 with the volume number of Drive Z)
    • Type Remove Letter Z.

    Let us know how it goes.
