Hi, I've seen this topic on here but my particular problem wasn't answered - after updating yesterday, my laptop has sprouted a new drive, it's 449mb and has been assigned letter E, so far, not really a problem, until I get frequently nagged to free up space as it is nearly full. This is particularly annoying as it appears to be empty.

 

In Settings/Storage there is a list which includes Other - 401mb and System and reserved - 13.8mb, as well as a load of other headings - documents, pictures etc. which are all 0mb but when I look in the drive it appears to be empty.

 

Is it possible to somehow just stop the nagging popup, or is that a bad idea, if so, what's the best fix please?
