What is this mysterious partition? (Hard drive/reinstalltion question)
Posted on 2013-12-25
I'v reformatted my Dell Inspiron 530 twice in the last week, to make sure everything was clean and set for a total reformatting, having backed up all my data well.
I did it twice because is messing around trying to reformat it the first time I wound up with a duplicate OS.
Now, all is well, and everything is working OK.
But in addition to the C: drive, I now have a D: drive showing as a "Local Disk" with an empty Temp folder in it, Used Spec of 65.0 and Free Space (looks like 100% of the "drive" is free) of 14.6 MB.
What the heck is this D: thing? Should I keep it, delete it, change its name so that I can use D: for my built-in DVD/CD player. Or what?
