  2. Local Disk (Fwhy some files don't work in F or E local disk :) is "full" with not files on it

    window 10 file manager shows a Local Disk (fwhy some files don't work in F or E local disk :) as 33.4 MB free of 449 MG with a red bar. If I right click Properties it confirms the current used space and free space.

    If I double-click the drive the file list is blank with "this folder is empty"

    Is this a page file or some kind of system file? Can I delete it?

    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.

    Local Disk F

    Yesterday I downloaded the new Window 10 update. I then started getting messages that said my local disk f was almost full, I needed to clean. I open Disk F and it shows that it is empty. I do not understand why I am getting this notice, or where local
    Disk f came from, or how to fix it.
