    Running out of space on Local Disk (F)


    So for a good week or so now, I've been getting alters every time I turn on my laptop and the suggestions of deleting stuff does nothing cuz there's nothing to delete. I clicked to remove back ups stored in the system, deleted all cache, deleted loads of programs/games etc, deleted my entire browser history and yet nothing is working and I'm still getting these notifications. there's "clean up system files" but I've "cleaned them" like 10 times. there's no files in local disc F at all, it's empty and yet on "this pc" it's listed as 44.4 MB left of 498.

    also I ran multiple virus scans with avast and malware bytes and nothing has been flagged

    Is this after upgrading to Windows 1803? A lot of users reported, that Recovery partition was shown, which wasn't supposed to (should remain hidden).

    Fastest solution is probably: more reading in this thread
    Type:

    mountvol [your desired partition]: /d and press Enter. OEM partition will be removed after that :) in my case I had E letter, Threadstarter has D letter so do like I wrote

    Your case - type in admin command prompt
    Code:
    mountvol F: /d

    Where do I type that phrase? Where is the admin command prompt?

    Welcome to Tenforums @jthole

    One way to get the admin command prompt - in the Cortana/Search box type cmd and the 'best match' will be 'Command Prompt'. Right-click on this and select 'run as administrator'. Type the command in the command prompt window and hit the 'Enter' key.
