Windows 7: unknown Local Disk M: from Explorer

unknown Local Disk M: from Explorer

I already know about local disk Q (office 2010 beta installs this) but Windows Explorer also shows a local disk M.

Disk Management Utility shows Volume C and an un-named Volume, could this by the mysterious M? When I click it I get "location is not available" error.

How can I remove this or figure out what it is? thanks.

That is your recovery partition or BitLocker.
