I'd appreciate help deleting an Ubuntu drive I created.

Thank you for your time. Awhile back I created a drive, CD:Drive (E) Ubuntu, and now I seem unable to rid myself of it. It won't let me remove or delete this. Any advice on how to do this would be wonderful. Also, if I may tack on one corollary question, what drives/volumes are necessary for Win 10? I found that I have a both a system and a boot volume, for example and had heard that everything is in the boot volume in Win 10. Thanks again!

You're running Windows 10, so go to Cortana and type in "Disk Management." It will say something like "Create and format hard disk partitions;" That's the one you want. Your boot drive should be called "Disk 0," and should have some partitions already on it, such as "OS: C." The C Partition is the Windows' partition, but you may have more, such as one or more recovery partitions and an OEM partition. These partitions are for booting to the Utility Partition. (Only do this if you want to completely wipe the hard drives and install the computer's original operating system.)


Now onto the answer. You'll just need to find the "E:" drive, right click on it, and select "Delete Volume."
