A: drive seek at boot

I'm using Windows 2000 Professional. Everytime my system starts up and reaches the login screen Windows looks for a disk in the A: drive but otherwise boots normally. It's not a major problem but it's just that the drive access is kind of annoying and I'm worried that it might cause unecessary wear to the drive. Is there anyway to disable this?

It's looking to make sure the drive is there and operational. If the activity seems excessive then I supect you have an anti-virus scanner running and it may be set to scan the drive. Of course without a disk in it there is nothing for it to scan but sometimes the scanner takes a few moments to figure that out. If you are using an anti-virus scanner then check out the customization options and see if you can find out whether it is set to scan the A drive at startup.

No virus scanner on my end. The access is very short which seems to fit with the Win2K checking drive operation reason. Pity there's no way to stop it. Thanks.
