Running Windows 7 Professional SP-1 32-bit.  I've been away from the computer for a week, and nobody else uses it.  Now, the "Format" option has disappeared from the context menu on all drives with removable storage -- both internal and external.  Otherwise, the drives work normally, including the other context menu commands.   Hard discs still have "Format" in their context menu.  Running SFC /scannow did not fix this. Please advise.
