I have just reformatted my hard drive with great succes (touch wood) so far. One small concern, when i click the safely remove hardware option it offers me the hard drive.As i will never want to do that (especially in windows) it seems like a dangerous thing to have available.Could this be my BIOS settings? Set to a removable device perhaps? I dont even like looking in there so i was hoping for a definitive answer on here!P.S. You guys have been such a help to me over the last few weeks, i feel like i have gained so much knowledge.Thanks guys.
Hi, if you have reformated your hard drive how are you now viewing it? It can't be 'C' cos that is where your OS is.
In the Device Manager, right click HDD, properties, select policies tab,make sure that a box isn't checked to "Optimize for quick removal", or something similar.
Or, is the hard drive you have reformatted an external drive? In which case it could show up as a removable device.
Technotiger: It is not a removable device and yes my OS is on that drive but i can still see it Santos: I have tried what you suggested and it is not checked, the box for faster processing is but all boxes and text is greyed out on that screen.

Hmm, I guess then that after reformatting your drive you then re-installed your OS? Because a re-formatted drive is surely an 'empty' drive.Read through this, it might offer something to go on, I have not read it all myself ...click here
