Constant 'Low Disk Space' error...

Hello, this is driving my mother mad!

Every day, multiple times, a pop up appears:

Low Disk Space
You are running out of disk space on Local Disk (D:).
Click here to see if you can free any space on this disk.

I noticed she had less than 10% space left... so deleted stuff until it was above 10% - No difference, message still appearing. I then checked against my Surface Pro 2017, which has less than 5%! But, I never get that message.

I have clicked on the 'click here' and followed instructions until there's nothing else to do. But still the message persists.

Anything I can do?

What is the D: drive? Is it an SD card or a partition on the internal SSD?

I looked this up the other day, it's:

Local Disk (D:)
47.3 MB free of 449 MB


But when I go in there:

This folder is empty.

Not even anything when I include hidden stuff! Got no idea what it is or why it's there o_O

Still puzzled. Is that drive listed in Device Manager? It would be listed if it's an SD card, in which case you could just reformat it. If not, it's a partition on the SSD, and you could delete that partition and add the space to the C-drive partition.

It's definitely not an SD card, as there's not one installed in that machine... partition I haven't looked at. Is there an easy way to delete this? I used to use PartitionMagic but not even sure if that's a thing any more!
