Right clik the V: partition in disk management...does it show an unmount option ? ? If so do that.
It looks more like a disk imaging app did this rather than a webpage creator...

BTW you are down to less than 10% Free space on your C: drive...time for some housekeeping.

about V:It's NOT listed in disk management... correct?
It's only listed in windows explorer and has exactly same size as C and also same used space. Delete or add some files to C. Does V change as well?

Also check registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\DOS Devices

So V is not visible anymore in windows explorer. In disk management I don't see it!! I see an unallocated space of 8MB. You want to add that space to E?
