Can anyone tell me why i have a new partition on my PC called System ( Z ) ? Firstly, my PC was bought brand new in March this year and I know for a fact that the said partition has only recently appeared....sometime in April !! The thing is...my PC's fan has been constantly on the go since System ( Z ) appeared...which is making the screen of my PC ( It;s an all-in-one PC ) quite hot to touch.
Also, when I have tried to do a system restore...a BLUE screen comes up, telling me that I cannot do a system restore as there is something wromg with my computer !? What is going on ???? Has anyone come up against any of the issues that I'm havimg ? I really hope there is someone out there that can help me !!!

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!
I read your post about the new partition and wanted to help.
Not to worry. Lots of folks on different forums are reporting this issue as it appears that some recent Win10 Updates have results in the formation of this small system partition.
It does not hurt anything -- but I would leave it alone, as no one has tested removing it to see what damage that might cause.
And WHY are you trying to do a system restore? That will wipe out all the data and apps -- so it is not something you should do on a routine basis.

Hi, thanks for your feedback. My computer also added the system z: as well. Since then my laptop runs slower and the fan runs all the time too. This is not healthy for the computer either. It is brand new and the screen flickers here and there. If the drive is not important, I would like to remove it. Can you please find out if this can be done. Thanks in advance. Rebecca
