    Update gave me a new drive letter -- I don't want it!


    Hello, the most recent update of Windows 10 -- V1803, Build 17134.48 -- added a D drive to my collections of drives, causing me aggravation as I had previously assigned that drive letter to my Dropbox folders. The additional annoyance is the periodic warning that the drive is running low on space. It appears to be a new partition of my first drive, created for no apparent purpose:

    I cannot treat it like a regular drive; I cannot use built-in tools to reassign its drive letter. Why did Windows see fit to create this new drive, and more important, how can I remove or rename it?
