Hello Nonpasaran,

I'm not sure either.

Does it give you a size for that volume that matches any of the partitions in Disk Management?

Nonpasaran,

What do you have showing in the Computer window?

Do you have a virtual drive, network drive, memory card reader, attached camera, or some other device connected to the computer that this could be from?

Sorry for late replay Brink,

My computer windows like this; (Tıklat-Calistir is meaning: Click and work or start) (Korunmus is meaning: Protected)





Before I said; "strange volume is apperaing when start disc cleanup utility" but it was my mistake, Q partition belong to Microsoft Office. Sorry for confuse you

But the strange volume still appearing when I start disc fragmented utility. (First post-first image) Maybe it (\\?Volume{ebc.....) same partition with Q. I don't know

(\\?Volume{ebc.....) would most likely be the Q drive as well.
