    I might be going mad but....

    Large windows update recently and every 5 minutes or so I'm interrupted with a pop-up advising me that Drive G is almost full (85%).

    Unless I'm going ga ga (always possible) I don't recall ever having a Drive G.

    Drive C
    Drive D (Recovery Image)
    Drive E - DVD
    on occasion - Drive H - USB media

    Checking Drive G shows no files or folders but 404 MB of something.

    Am I missing something?

    I think I recall an option to right click over a folder and perhaps in 'properties' or 'advanced' you can select an option 'show hidden files'.
    'They' think it best that you don't do anything with such files and they may be right....

    Thanks to both for your replies (and apologies for my late response).

    @magiclintel - tried but to no avail

    @MarkBarl - thanks, that seems to have worked.

    Ta to both for taking time to reply.
