Local Disk E

I updated to the Creators Spring 1803 update yesterday.  Everything seems to be fine although I have not done much since updating.  However I notice in windows explorer under Local disk C another entry for Local disk E?  It is for 449mb in size with 42.9mb free space left.  It opens to show nothing saying the folder is empty.  What is it ?  Anything to do with the update or can I just delete it?

Yes, it is 3 in your case. It can vary to a system by system.
Correct squence:

diskpart
list volume
select volume 3
remove letter="E"

This is one of the known issues I am seeing with the update as Recovery partition should be hidden and is accidentally assigned a drive letter.
Right-click Start>Command Prompt(admin)
Type in the following:
diskpart
list volume
select volume 3
Replace 3 with the number of the volume which is assigned a drive letter. (In hundreds of MBs)
remove letter="G"
Replace G with the Recovery drive letter.

Don't worry, removing a drive letter would not cause any harm to your device.
