Getting low disk space alert on drive I don't have

Hello all,
I keep receiving this low disk space alert on a non-existent drive.  I realize that this could be some hidden segment or something, but I don't know what to do about it.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Alert is pasted below.

Thanks,
John

Hi John,

Can you check the computer management on your server to see if you have added a volume that would be the 5th volume on the drive?
Can you please provide us with the disk configuration of the server.
- type of disk sub system in use
- partitions or volumes on disk
- number of disks
Basically as much as you can type here on the page to describe your server.

Regards,
M

You are using a USB Hard Drive to backup and don't have it configured for fast removal... and are then removing it without clicking on the removable drive icon in your system tray.

You either need to configure it for fast removal or remove it properly to avoid this error.

Jeff,
You were on the right track.  I had plugged in a USB Hard Drive and I configured it, but for some reason the alerts kept coming until I did a reboot of the server.  I was worried that something worse was going on somewhere, but the USB was the issue and the 55 alerts and pages have stopped.

Thanks,
John
