Mystical Local Drive (Z:) USB has appeared on a Windows 10 Home machine
Posted on 2016-11-03
What on earth might be this Local Drive (Z:) USB 151 MB free/256 MB, appearing on a 2yrs old Windows 10 laptop? And, how to get into it for checking and trying to delete?
When trying to open it to see it's content -> Access denied from you (w/admin rights!) -> Check Security Tab, but, on the Properties there is no Security Tab at all, like neither with other USB's.
On Device manager/Disk drives there is found
Generic Flash Disk USB Device
with event date 29.9.2016
and, on Event viewer/System there were found notings
29.9.2016 13:43:59 Kernel-PnP w/Event codes 400 410 440
When checking all this, after a restart, on the laptop there were no external connected USB or SD devices. And, quite sure, on the laptop there has never been inserted any 256MB USB stick ...
Thanks in advance for some help on this weird appearance.
