TP E540 Windows 10 E drive problem

Hi all


This laptop had Windows 8 on it when I bought it and I upgraded it to Windows 10 a year or so ago. Think it was a fresh install - can't really remember. This afternoon we started getting a warning that the E drive was full. Hadn't really noticed that we had an E drive to be honest but it is 476MB and ony has 32MB left. E is a partition of the main drive but I'm not sure what it is for or what's taking the space. See screenshot below.



DM.pngDisc Manager

With "view hidden files" on I can see a $RECYCLE.BIN folder, a RECOVERY folder and a System Volume Information folder. System Restore is turned off. I have used Ccleaner to empty the recycle bin for all users plus remove other temporary files. No change. Now - and I suspect this is the culprit - I ran the Windows 10 April 2018 updater this morning. Everything went well.


My questions;

The Windows 10 installermust have made the E drive - what is it for?

What's taking the space and how do I solve the space issue?

Same here on a E460 but its drive D for me. Same size. Unable to do anything with it in disk management.

Google OEM partition and NTFS file system. It could be someting important.

You can add more space to that partition.
