Windows 10 April update (1804)

I have just updated Windows 10 to the latest Spring edition and had no problems doing the download and install, everything went well. However....I have a question! Since the update an icon for a new virtual 'H' drive has appeared in 'File Explorer/This PC'! It has a capacity listed as 449 GB with free space of 49 GB. The drive contains two folders: Recovery and System Volume Information, both of which appear to be empty. What is this 'Drive' and can it be deleted?
Hi Derek, this is a known issue in the 1803 Update,

It is the recovery drive, you are not meant to see it, it is not meant to have a drive letter, remove the drive letter and everything will return to normal:

Click your Start Button, type cmd, then right click Command Prompt and choose 'Run as Administrator'

Run this command and hit Enter


Run this command and hit Enter

list volume

Note down the letter associated with that new drive

Run these commands one at a time and hit Enter (replace X with the correct drive letter)

select volume X

remove letter=X

Close Command Prompt and restart your PC

Power to the Developer!
