Tright here won"t be a solution till someone discovers why it is happening.

If it is formatted as Fat 32, it is your EFI System partition which is provided to boot the device.

If you run a UEFI System and were watch two Fat 32 partitions in Disk Management, then you might have a problem.

If you can remember any type of details about when it first appeared, it could be beneficial, but it appears something about the units configurations is associated.


I absolutely remember when this happened to my computer system, a couple of months ago, I was painting my bathroom. It took 2 days.

I run Windows 10 Home (nopoint yet problems and I number this is component of the gift that keeps on giving) on a Toshiba 64-little bit laptop with 8 gb memory and 1T hard drive.

My lapheight was on however nothing was run on it, not even email, for two days, other than the automatic Windows update, which I can not figure out exactly how to revolve off. After that update the Z drive was tright here.

I also asked my cats and also they swear they didn"t touch the computer system. They are extremely well trained, so I believed them. :-)

Sometimes, when I upday an additional item of software, which is rare, it disshows up. But as shortly as Windows runs one more among their updays, it"s earlier.

I have asked a few folks to perform somepoint for me so I can examine the partition, but so much no one has been willing.

If you are you should open up an Administrative command prompt. We will be founding Diskcomponent, then listing the drives and choosing the drive via the partition in question. After that we list the partitions on the drive and also pick the one in question. I am including the procedure as done on my system so you will have to enter the correct drive and partitions numbers as you present. Please copy and paste the partition detailsof yours when finished
