Not sure what is going on here, but a couple of days ago a new drive appeared on my home PC, it has a drive letter of "G" file system "NTFS" Capacity of 450MB and only 34MB are left available on the drive.

 

Now I cannot access anything on the drive, when I open it, it states the drive is empty! (makes no sense) I have attached some images of the Disk Mgmt, Disk Properties, and the File Folder! 

 

I would love to know how to get rid of this thing, my PC keeps giving off an alert sound, because the drive is running out of space, this is getting very annoying....

 

Please Help!!

It's a bug in the latest Windows update.
