    Unknown drive listed under optimize drives


    My PC seems to be misbehaving lately, so I explored various options. I checked "Defragment and Optimize Drives" tool and was presented with the display shown below. What is the 3rd entry beginning with \\?\Volume{... ? Is it something that should concern me? Can it be corrected?

    It's the Russians. Or more likely just your recovery partition and is fine. Post a screenshot of disk management and we can tell more:

    I guess you're correct regarding the recovery partition.

    It's a 'virtual drive' that gets put into action when a recovery process takes place.

    Edwin,

    Was this created when I created an USB recovery drive?

    I'll try the steps you showed in your response.
