I was looking threw my files and found something not sure if it could help with why the f drive is popping up but I found a drive in one drive and I had to disable hide hidden folders so it was hidden not sure if that would help diagnose why the f drive is popping up and everytime I try to access it is denies because it to also has a bitlocker and it links to the f drive everytime I try to access the drive in the hidden one drive folder the f drive appears on the right side with c: drive can I paste the name of the drive in the one drive folder?

Unless someone ran a very custom, special PowerShell script that did some amazing drive mapping then OneDrive doesn't provide a physical drive like that. It is a link that goes to virtual connection to the Cloud to access and back up your files if you have it setup to do so.

This is some type of physical, virtual drive. I've been off work though for the past few hours so we'll need to check on it more tomorrow.

What is the model number of the computer?

I don't see a specific entry in the User Manual discussing an additional F: virtual drive that is encrypted with BitLocker

It looks like the computer is reasonably new. Are you able to contact CyberPower or whomever you purchased from and ask them about this drive?
Again, without the BitLocker key whatever it is you will not be able to use, manipulate it without that key.

Please download HWiNFO the Professional System Information and Diagnostics program.
HWiNFO Portable for Windows

Unzip the program to its own folder such as: C:\HWiNFO
Go to the new folder and locate the file C:\HWiNFO\HWiNFO64.exe and double-click to run it.
Click the RUN button.
Ignore the update, click close.
Click on Save Report and choose HTML and click Next, then Finish
By default, it will create a new report named COMPUTER.HTM in the same folder as the program. C:\HWiNFO
Please zip that file and attach it to your next reply

Thank you

I'm not seeing another physical device. The only physical drive shown is this one so the others would appear to be Partitions or Virtual from the main drive or something in software.

Drive Controller:    NVMe (PCIe 0x 8.0 GT/s)
Host Controller:    Sandisk, Device ID: 5009
Drive Model:    WDC WDS100T2B0C-00PXH0

 

Please do the following

Create an Autoruns Log:

  • Please download Sysinternals Autoruns from here.
  • Save Autoruns.exe to your desktop and double-click it to run it.
  • Once it starts, please press the Esc key on your keyboard.
  • Now that scanning is stopped, click on the Options button at the top of the program and select Verify Code Signatures and Check VirusTotal.com and Submit Unknown Images
  • Once that's done press the F5 key on your keyboard, this will start the scan again, this time let it finish.
  • When it's finished, please click on the File button at the top of the program and select Save and save the Autoruns.arn file to your desktop and close Autoruns.
  • Right-click on the Autoruns.arn file on your desktop and hover your mouse over Send To and select Compressed (zipped) Folder
  • Attach the Autoruns.zip folder you just created to your next reply

It's okay for Autoruns to not find some items.

If you know how to activate that F: drive please do and let me know how you're doing it.

Yes, I'm 99% sure that is your Microsoft OneDrive entry which is a Virtual Disk.

If you don't choose to use it then you can either disable it or uninstall it.

Myself I'm not a huge fan of the Cloud so I choose not to use it and uninstall it, but if for nothing else it can backup your data if you're not using any other method.

Myself I'd recommend a more robust and full backup solution but the choice is yours.
