floppy drive querie

  Blubottle 10:11 02 Apr 2008

I still use my floppy drive, but since I have carried out a complete clean re-install it has now started to intermittently test itself, more often than not within the first 5 mins of start up and whilst I am downloading and deleting emails, then every so often. I am puzzled.
any ideas.

Could be a shortcut to something or other that is being accessed; try running a program like CCleaner click here which might clear out unused shortcuts.

Next time it tries this, insert a blank floppy. Hopefully, you will get a message back saying it can't find a specific file and also showing which program is looking for it.
