That was created by an HP program.  Did you intentionally install it or was it automatic?You didn't mention OS or model, but it is probably HP Hardware Diagnostics:

It contains diagnostic tools for your system. The best is to move this to a USB flash drive for recovery purposes later.

You do not seem to need space overall. Unless it bothers you, just leave it. You never know when something might happen. I just ignore these.

Nothing. Go to Windows Disk Management (right click on Computer - Management - Disk Management).
There right click on G and select Add Remove Drive Letters. Select Remove.
This will remove the drive fron Windows Explorer and bring you back your calmness. The drive was always there, now it got the drive letter thus you see it.
