    why does it say I have a removable disk in my pc?


    It says I have a removable disk in my computer, but nothing is plugged in to any of the ports.
    If anyone has a soltion please reply.
    I think the volume of the thing was taken from the local disk, so it is running low on storage?

    Thanks,

    Hi eary57,

    I'm wondering if you have hot-plugging enabled in you BIOS for your drives? If so, that would cause the safely remove icon to pop-up with no ability do so. At least it does (did) on mine. However, I have no need for hot-plugging so I have disabled it for all SATA drives. Hope this helps.
