    Unknown drive listed under optimize drives


    My PC seems to be misbehaving lately, so I explored various options. I checked "Defragment and Optimize Drives" tool and was presented with the display shown below. What is the 3rd entry beginning with \\?\Volume{... ? Is it something that should concern me? Can it be corrected?

  2. Volume defrag

    You can actually remove it from the list of the drives you want to optimize on a regular schedule. To do so, kindly follow these steps:

    • Search for Defragment and Optimize drive.
    • Under Optimize Drives, click the Change settings button.
    • Under Optimization schedule, click the Choose beside Drives.
    • Uncheck the \\?\Volume drive to remove it from the list.

    We would appreciate an update about how it went.

    I guess you're correct regarding the recovery partition.

    It's a 'virtual drive' that gets put into action when a recovery process takes place.
