New ASUS ROG with Windows 10. I have only had this machine for a week. OS is installed on a SSD. Today, out of the blue, 2 new drives showed up when I went to copy some files from the Data drive (D:) to an external USB drive. Even if I remove the external drive they still show up in Explorer
The 2 drives are EFI System Partition which shows as Drive E: and the Recovery Partition which shows as Drive F:. When I look at these drives in Disk Management they show up but do not have drive letters assigned.
Not sure why all of a sudden these to partition show up. Any insight as to why this might have happened and if it is safe to remove the drive letters would be greatly appreciated. Not sure if . . . mountvol E: /d would remove the drive letter or not since Disk Management reports that it does not have one assigned. At this point I did not want to screw up the OS (which is working fine) by trying a bunch of stuff. Thought maybe someone else had also had this happen and could share their experience.
Thanks in advance for you help.
