At seemingly random intervals for quite some time now, I’ve been getting annoying pop-ups telling me I’m running out of space on Local Disk (K:).
There is no such disk in the physical world, but there it is on Windows Explorer. It appears to be empty, yet Properties says it has 409 MB used and 41.5 MB free. I put a small jpg file into it, and I could open and view the jpg normally. Perhaps it’s a partition?
I noticed it a while after I attempted to install the software that came with an old Pinnacle video capture device I had. That software turned out to be incompatible with Windows X, and it installed a non-certified (or something) video driver I had to track down and delete. But why would that software have created a partition?
What is the optimal method for making this thing go away?
Hmmmm. Maybe the Disk Management tool might show some info? Or whatever it is that lists the devices on the system. Not sure as I don’t use Windows 10 and I’m on Linux right now, but what you described does look a lot like a RAM drive.
