I found a solution for this issue on the Microsoft Help Forum;



I applied this fix and it seems to have worked!



******This is one of the known issues 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:
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="E"


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

When I right-mouse click on the 'E:' partition a drop-down appears that only says HELP on it.

I do not understand why your right-mouse "click" does not reveal more options, in addition to "help".


Right-mouse click on the 'E:' partition.

Choose "Change drive letter and paths".

Click to select the 'E:' partition.

Click "Remove" (the association).


Alternately, one can use the 'diskpart.exe' command-line interface to do exactly the same -- much more complicated than using the GUI (Graphic User Interface).
