Disk not accessible / not in Disk Managment
Posted on 2010-08-25
So I have an interesting problem that I have never seen before. When I open up My Computer, it shows 2 HDDs (c:\ and q:\). The thing is, I only have 1 drive installed. When I look in Disk Management, I see the 1 drive (with 3 factory partitions none of which are associated with q:\), and 1 DVD Rom drive, also not associated with q:\
I dont know where this Q:\ drive is coming from, or more importantly how to get rid of it.
The only think that I can think of that would have caused this error is trying to hook up an old SATA 5.25" drive to my laptops E-SATA/USB port.
Please someone tell me how to get rid of a disk that I cant see in the disk management, but can see listed in My Computer.
