Re: deleting a drive?
|Originally posted by thenoser
i have a laptop running win2k with an external hard drive. until recently, the external drive was designated as drive e: and i have a few programs pointing to it. today the system decided i needed a new drive and created an e: drive labelled 'removable disk', and changed the designation of my external drive to f:. can anyone tell me how i can delete the newly created drive? i have not added to or changed my system in any way. i have tried going to the command prompt and removing the drive from there, but i get a message saying there is no disk in the drive.
Do you have auto-update on? TURN THAT OFF (if you do). Sounds like you got a driver update that either found a media card-reader for the first time (or updated itself and reset the drive letter).
The fix is SIMPLE and easy.
RIGHT-CLICK on My Computer
click the DISK MANAGEMENT item under Storage
RIGHT-CLICK on the drive E: (the non-existent one)
Select CHANGE DRIVE LETTERS and give it another letter
RIGHT-CLICK on the F: (formerly E
and do the same, change to E:
Click OK to all the warnings and prompts, then everything should be fine.
