unknown extra drive letter exist within hardware configuration of Windows 10 laptop
Posted on 2016-09-25
Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,
Upon visual inspection of my hardware configuration, I did notice an extra drive letter identified as ESP (Z:) on my Windows 10 Acer laptop. I never remember creating a partition on my hard drive. Also, there are not any external USB storage devices hooked up either. When I click on this unknown drive letter, I get a message indicating that I do not have permission to access this drive. Please click Continue to have permanent access to it. The size capacity of this unknown drive is 296MB with 270MB free.
In closing, this is certainly a mystery to me because of the unknown origins of this drive letter. Any suggestions for resolving this concern will be appreciated.
