I made the mistake of allowing a friend to try to attach his external HDD to my laptop. It was one of those generic cases that you just drop a drive into. Well, when it asked for the driver disk, he gave it the wrong one.
Now, I always have a reference to a removeable drive, even when nothing is attached. It doesn't seem to be causing any problems, but it is annoying. It is always the same drive letter (E:). I have gone to the Device Manager and removed the visible traces of the drive. But, it is always there when I reboot the system.
Is there an entry/entries in the registry I should be looking for to make my laptop forget about that removable drive?
Next time, I will pay much closer attention to what is going on with my laptop.
