    Check your drive settings in Device Manager. To remove the Hibernation partition, you just need to go into a Command Window and enter powercfg /hibernate off.

    By default, when you select ShutDown, it doesn't actually fully shut-down and instead goes into a form of Hibernation.
    I would suggest you turn off Fast Startup:
    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    Indeed, Fast Startup saves to the same C:\hiberfil.sys as Hibernate. Disable Hibernation and this disables Fast Startup too.
    Enable or Disable Hibernate in Windows 10

    Last time I saw that message [couple of weeks ago] was when booting to a Linux Mint LiveDVD to enable copying data from the Windows NTFS-formatted drive that wouldn't boot but Linux couldn't Mount the drive. I pulled the drive and put it in a BlacX External dock connected to my Win10 computer and ran chkdsk which found some issues but at least I was able to save the needed data. In the process I discovered that the drive was getting too hot and slowing down the platters, had to replace it.

    What Operating Systems do you use? Not much detail to go into for simple steps that are basic user actions.
