Recently I have been having trouble with a 508MB drive called "Local Disk (E:)" that shows up in my "This PC" menu. The reason it is an issue is because windows notifies me once every hour or so that it is almost out of space, sometimes even shifting focus to the desktop and minimizing the program I am running. It is super annoying so I want to delete the drive somehow.
I have no idea what it is or how it got there (it is not a physical hard drive or USB), and I was unable to delete it with the disk management tool (right clicking the drive only pops up with the help option). Disk management states that it is an OEM partition, whatever that means.
According to File Explorer, it only has 39.3 MB of empty space on it. When I open it with file explorer it is empty (even with show hidden files enabled). Using WINDIRSTAT I was able to find a single file on the drive called desktop.ini
I have a Dell XPS (it wasnt there when I first installed windows 10) and recently installed Autodesk Maya and a GTX 1070 graphics card if that helps narrow anything down.
