How do I delete hidden \\?\Volume{} partions from secondary hard drive?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Recently did a massive PC upgrade, switching from my FX-6300 to a Ryzen 5 3600, and switching my boot drive from hard drive to m.2 ssd. I repeatedly got into issues reinstalling large games/apps on my now secondary hard drive, running into multiple disk write errors installing games on both Steam and the Windows Store. Doing my best to troubleshoot, I opened Windows' de-fragmenting tool and found a bunch of gibberish volumes. This was made extra confusing considering that those volumes don't appear appear in my disk management tool.


Any help deleting these volumes would be greatly appreciated, as well as suggestions as to make my secondary hard drive more stable.
