low disk space on f drive

I keep getting a window popping up that says low disk space on f drive. I have cleaned the disk but it doesn't go away. I also thought the f drive was a plug in drive for my camera and such so I don"t understand why it would keep popping up when nothing is connected to that drive. I tried to move the data to an external drive I have but I couldn't figure out how to do it. Any help would be appreciated.

I backed the drive up on my external and formatted the f drive. I think that fixed it.
Thanks for the suggestions.
