There is a bug in Windows 10 where it will assign a driver letter to either the EFI partition or the Windows RE partition, causing Windows to give that low drive space warning. Can you provide a screenshot of Disk Management? Right click Computer or This PC > Manage > Disk Management.

Use the snipping tool (use the search box) to window around Disk Management. Save the file as a jpg. Click More Reply Options next to the Post button. Attach the file.

It looks like Windows 10 created a new Windows RE partition after your D: partition which I believe was at one time a Windows RE partition.

 

You can unassign the drive letter. See the below link. Use Option 2. You want to verify the volume number that is assigned to D: 

 

https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/107032-remove-drive-letter-windows-10-a.html

 

once in a command window you would type the following commands.

 

diskpart

list disk

select disk X    In your case it would be disk 0

list volume

select volume X     Where X is the volume number associated with D:

remove letter=D

 

Once the drive letter has been removed you will no longer get the error.
