    This is not true at all. Can be done with either PWM or Macrium. In fact, Macrium is much easier than PWM
    Thank you very much. I'll view it as soon as I get home. I appreciate your effort.

    If this is better left out, then is there a way of making this partition hidden? I simply don't want it there since I never had it before and it's just adding to the clutter.

    @OP
    Seriously, you should have left the way it was so that everything is working the way Windows meant to be. Saving a few MB's is not worth the effort, besides, surfing the internet for a while, you would have downloaded lots of junk for cache and often it will be in the order of GB's.

    Having said that, here's the video I made for you to show how it's done with either PWM or Macrium.

    Re. Macrium - isn't that what I said???

    Even PWM does not move it - you have to mess around copying to another drive and restoring it etc. Macrium is easier.

    Not sure why you get a letter assigned to this partition. All my installation of Windows have this partition hidden, the OEM partition (was called Recovery Partition prior to this build) and should have a partition type id=DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC
    Since you've already deleted this partition, you can restore it back from Macrium restore then use diskpart to check if it is set to correct id and attributes.

    diskpart
    select disk 0
    select par 1
    detail par

    You should get a screen as shown below. Check the ID and Attributes. If not the same then change them:

    set id=DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC override
    gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001


    NOTE: gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001 will prevent Windows to assign any letter to this partition.

    Microsoft Solution


    I noticed the same issue after the update. Microsoft is aware and in work on the issue. Their solution was to run a command prompt as administrator and run the Mountvol [OffendingDriveLetter]: /d command. I ran this and fixed the annoying "out of space" prompts. Hope that helps.

    mountvol will do exactly the same as "remove" command (unassign the letter) with diskpart. It will remove the drive letter temporarily but on next reboot, Windows will re-assign again. The "Out Of Space" message only check the drive(s) with Drive letter assigned. You must set the Attributes as shown above to prevent it.

    To permanently get rid of the annoying message "Out of Space". Set the value as shown below in the registry:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=dword:00000001

    FYI - Drive Full Message


    I have not received the message since the original Mountvol command and that is after several reboots and several hours online.
