    I just finished the "part 1" from the link.
    But now I can't find any software you listed.
    I got rid of stuff like SKYPE and BEATS long ago and I think W10 got rid of the rest last week.
    I use to use Cyberlink's Power To Go but now it's gone.
    When I click "Uninstall a program" I get a list of stuff I built up a few days ago.

    Am I ready to delete the partition?

    Part 1 - Clean boot, done
    HP bloat SW found was not found in the Installed Programs list - good!

    Machine Restarted - Yes?

    Delete D: ... ready when you are

    I checked the partition settings in the data you previously provided again and it looks like a normal disk
    Disk Management should not complain when you delete it.
    If it does, I'll give you another method.

    OK...
    I don't know how to delete it.

    When I double click "D" it opens up to 2 folders (recovery & temp)
    Is it as easy as deleting these two folders?
    Somehow I doubt it.

    I tried to follow some HP instructions but it was for the older Vista.
    As you see I opened up Disk Management but found no actions.

    OK...
    I haven't figured out how to delete the Partition yet but at this moment my PC is running the slowest I've ever experienced.
    It took over a minute for Firefox to open.
    Am I suppose to back and change the settings to what they were?

    I was also managing some music files and while transferring from one folder to another by drag and drop I realized it was the wrong folder so I X'd it out (closed) before 1% was even transferred.
    Now the folder with all the music is gone.

    I'm going to bed.

    Ok, not sure what's going on, but you really haven't changed much on your system at this point. The only real change was disabling startup items.


    I'd like you to first remove the drive letter from D:
    Disk Management
    Select D: (NTFS) in the top pane list
    Right click
    Select Change Drive Letter and paths...
    Press the Remove button and acknowledge the warning with OK

    Restart your system.

    Post another Disk Management screen shot

    Then
    In Files Explorer
    This PC
    copy the line below and paste it into search box

    kind:=(music OR movie)

    That will hopefully locate the files you were dragging/dropping

    Thanks

    I right clicked on everything last night.
    I only get "help" instead of commands.
    Here's a pic.

    I should add that my PC seems normal this morning.
    And thanks for the music search tip.

    Ok,

    Did you find the files?

    Be certain that you process the correct Partition in this set.

    Command Prompt (Admin)
    diskpart
    sel dis 0
    lis vol

    sel vol 2
    lis par
    lis vol

    **
    ** These are not part of the command set, they are notes
    **
    ** You should see an asterisk the the left of the partition and volume indicating it is the one selected.
    ** Make sure that the Volume selected is D:
    ** the next command deletes it
    **

    del par override

    Cheers!

    Do I need to reclaim any space for "C" or am I done?
    I'll do a WD scan now which will take about 3 hours.

    Ok, see what WD tells you.

    For now, you can leave the space unallocated, you have 401 GB free on C:

    Your system could stand a reorg, but I think you should wait until Win1607 in August - then backup your machine and do a clean install

    The 1607 release will be enough of a change to warrant a clean install ... for everyone.
    Yeah, I know .... that means I have to reinstall all my software .... it's worth it.

    There's a feature in PowerShell that helps install and update some third party software.
    PowerShell PackageManagement (OneGet) - Install Apps from Command Line - Windows 10 Forums

    Just some reading and thinking for now ... a tool to use after a clean install.


    I'd like to see your Disk Management again

    1. You can skip this since you already downloaded it or get it again
      Download dmDskmgr-vd.zip (contains dmDskmgr-vd.mmc)

    2. Double click dmDskmgr-vd.zip to open the compressed folder
      Double click dmDskmgr-vd.mmc to launch the custom Disk Management console

    3. Press Alt+PrtScn to grab a snapshot of just the Disk Management window
      Open Paint and Ctrl+V to paste it, then save the image

    4. Attach the image to a new post


    Thanks
