Latest windows 10 update makes OEM partition visible

The latest windows 10 update just installed today an de following partitions on te disk have changed from Recovery partitions to OEM partitions

These partition where not visible in Windows explorer, however no one is visible and keeps giving the error there is not enough diskspace - this os the partition E, then the partition RE and PBR_OS also have changed they did not have a name before now they have.

Having windows mention every couple of minutes drive E has nearly no diskspace left although it appears te be empty is quite annoying.

Any solution or patch for this !!!!!

3. If you have more than one hard disk in your PC…

a. Type List disk and note the number of the disk on which Windows 10 is installed
b. Type Select Disk N where N is the number of the Windows installation disk

4. Type List Volume to see which partition has the offending drive letter. It will be a drive with a size measured in MB (Megabytes)
5. Type Select Volume N where N is the number of the UEFI partition that’s been given a drive letter, in my experience so far it’s the one called “Recovery”
6. Type Remove Letter=N where N is the drive letter (maybe D or E) assigned to the UEFI partition
7. Type Exit to close Diskpart
8. Close the Command Prompt Window

Same thing happened to me. However, I noticed that Disk 0 (what used to be my primary drive) is now Disk 3 and Disk 1 (which was my secondary drive) is now Disk 0. I have a E and F drive. E is a RAID 0 array (2 disks) and F is a two disk storage space (a quasi RAID 1 software controlled by Windows Storage Spaces) which are both now Disk 4 and 5 respectively. Functionality of the system seems fine (except for the annoying low disk warning for the new OEM partition). I just wanted to point that out. While everything appears to be functioning, it's a bit annoying that my nicely ordered drives have now been jumbled. :/
