  1. System Reserved (E:) showing almost full despite empty folders,


    Did a lengthy search online and if I understood, windows store some system reserved files in hidden location. Is there a for dummies way to access it and possibly safely removing unnecessary files. I understand that system reserved files should not be tampered with but how to stop windows to launch low storage warning, as it is doing.

  2. Reserve System E


    I checked the recycle bin there is no system reserved E listed. I was on a page that showed me the stuff in my system ( please know that I don't know what words to write ). The menu listed reserved system E. I right clicked on it and got another menu with several options. One of them was to "unallocate" it. Since I had previously seen a solid red line on system reserved E and kept getting pop up messages that system reserved E was full and no more space was available, I decided to "unallocate" it thinking that would free up space. Instead the action , I guess, Uninstalled it.

    Not good!
    First thing you need to do, before you even think of shutting down that machine, backup all your stuff, create rescue media or clean install media, and check for a restore point or a system image!

    Reserve System E


    I mistakenly deleted reserved system E. Can I get it back? It was full and showing a solid red line. What is happening to stuff that should be in system reserved E?
