I have recently noticed the addition of a Local Disc Z, I note previous solutions offered, but so far none have removed the drive.
I understand that the Z drive can be hidden from the exp;orer screen, either solution would do.
Thank you in advance.
Lots of folks have recently reported a new "drive" suddenly appearing on their PCs.Usually, it is drive "Z", but sometimes, it can have a different letter.Consensus (since MS is not forthcoming on this) is that this is a working volume created by Windows Updates to manage recent updates.You won't be able to remove it in Windows since it was put there by the "trusted installer" and you can't override that.You can remove it by booting into a Linux distro (since Windows is not running, then), but the exercise is pointless as Windows Update will simply recreate it again, when needed.Best course of action is to simply ignore it.
