Hi! I have looked for an answer to this on Google, and I THINK I managed to tackle one aspect of the problem, but not the core problem itself, which is that the latest Windows 10 Update (last night, 05/15/2018 at 2 a.m., which is technically this morning!) has been hitting me with repeated notifications about low disk space. A little bleary-eyed, I moved some folders I'd been planning to move anyway to my external drive, and, then, after 100 GBs had been moved and I was STILL getting the LDW every few minutes I looked at the red-bar drive and realized I'd been getting notifications about a drive I had never created! It appears to be virtual, and it only contains 449 mb, but I cannot figure out how to delete it. I was able to go into the registry, and seem to have been successful at shutting off the notifications, but Microsoft Support offered no help, and I think something like this could cause trouble in the future if I do not address it. I was hoping maybe one of you guys had a suggestion, or maybe someone else has had this happen? Thanks in advance! Oh, I have a Dell Inspiron 4150 w/ 8.00 GB Ram, 64-bit OS, and Windows 10 Home!

Windows always creates folders called Windows.old this is around a 20 o 30 GB size

Thanks! I cannot clean the drive, though, and when I open it it is empty. I am running a disk cleanup on "C" to see if it might handle the new drive as well, but I don't see how it would, since it doesn't clean up any other separate drives.

No luck. Ran CC Cleaner as well. Nothing there either. The registry thing DOES seem to have worked! Since my last reboot I have not received the low disk space warning. I also posted a new topic on Microsoft Support, so maybe they'll actually answer?
