Unusual volume on hard drive?

It's probably an extra recovery partition, is it about 450MB?

\\?\Volume{c4bc4b54-0000-0000-0000-908cae000000}\  is the address given when there is no drive letter assigned, as is with hidden system partitions.

Which Windows version are you using? Windows 10?

Did you upgrade from another version?

I had this too, and to get rid of it, I made a system image of my whole disk with Macrium Reflect, then did a clean install, nuking all partitions, and let the Windows installer, set the partitions the way it wanted. After the clean install, I then booted to my Macrium recovery USB and ONLY reimaged the C: partition.(if you have any data partitions select them too).

When it was finished, and I rebooted into Windows, it did a boot repair(a surprise to me, but understandable, as I would have done that in the Macrium recovery environment).

In any case the extra recovery partition is gone, and I have recovered about half a gig on my SSD.
