    Do you have a USB drive, network drive or SD card inserted?

    That could be a folder on a networked drive.

    That may be a System or Reserved partition. It is quite small or a small percentage of the total size of the HDD. I don't let that bother me as it has no impact upon the overall storage of data.

    According to your picture it is not a Drive but a Partition on the only HDD/Hard Disk Drive in the computer. Windows may prevent you from deleting but you might right-click it and see if you can remove/unassign the drive letter F: for it. Again, Windows may not let you do that. And again, it's such a small partition it shouldn't be a problem if left alone. I guess one could save all their data and do the clean install of the OS choosing to clean the drive completely but 1 or more of the partition will return, just the way Windows does things.
