I am at a catch 22, It won't let me access this drive, states its empty, also says 44 megs left. How can I increase partiton size without reformatting? Or, is there a fix for this? Thank you in advance! i still have 152 gigs left on 1 tb on ssd drive.

I think you may be talking about the Windows 10 bug that added a drive letter to a recovery partition. Can you post a screenshot of Disk Management?

You can attach a jpg. Click More Reply Options and then Choose File > Attach File. The Twitter link gives me nothing.

That is a Windows 10 bug that added a drive letter to that partition. You will need to unassign the letter of that partition. Once you do that you will no longer get the drive full message.

 

See option 2 on the below page. Make sure you select the correct volume number.

Don't worry about the drive running out of space. I ran into this myself on Monday and had to use CMD to remove the drive letter as Drive MGMT wouldn't allow me to reassign the drive using the GUI and it was fine afterwards.

You don't have to delete anything but UNASSIGN A DRIVE LETTER to that recovery partition.

It's grayed out and won't let me access it. Even as admin.

Use option 2 in the link I posted. Make sure you are selecting the correct volume number. You can see the size of each volume.
