    New drives in windows explorer


    Hi

    I bought a new PC yesterday HP 550-103na windows 10 ( how do i edit my profile btw ?)

    This evening after a reboot i have a new drive in explore called System and drive letter G

    In disk management this shows as EFI System with no drive letter

    So question is how do i remove it from explorer as it should be hidden yes ? and/or should i be worried

    Thats the Recovery partition where a support or system image might be installed to recover system in case of a falliure.
    OEMs like Dell and HP .. Normally put a System image or support software in these kind of recovery partitions.

    No need to worry you can definitely hide the partition if you want to
