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.
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.
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?
