Re: local disk (Q:)

Hi,

 

Have you recently installed any new software, particularly any virtual drive software such as PowerISO?

Re: local disk (Q:)

Hi:

 

If you have Office 2010 Starter installed, when you initialize the program, it creates a local disk Q which is not accessible.

You can hide it if you want...requires editing the registry. Do so at your own peril.
