AHCI on Windows 7 - Drive icons for attached drives do not "refresh" when drives removed
Posted on 2011-03-02
When a secondary SATA drive is removed from the running PC, sometimes the icon for the recently removed drive does not quickly disappear. In fact, sometimes it stays visible for several minutes, and even the drive folders can be seen. Selecting "refresh" does not solve the problem.
Is there a way to force Windows to refresh quickly and automatically when a SATA drive is hot-swapped?
