Shows Hard Drive I Don't Have

Recommended Posts

:wp:

 

Open the OverDrive test that is showing the F drive and at the upper left click on 'Test History', then scroll down to just below the listed results and click on 'Purge old tests for this configuration'.

I did as instructed, but still don't understand why old results would be included in a new scan. I thought a new scan would not show problems that were no longer problems. Not show problems that were not only not problems, but not even there.

You originally stated that the problem was that the F drive was showing. Was the F drive flagged as having a problem?

 

The test cannot update for a drive that is no longer there. Any time the drive configuration is changed for a specific computer the only way to remove drives that are no longer connected is to purge the test history.

Yes it was flagged in the test ran today. (Yesterday now). It was reporting the F drive to be slow and in need of defragmenting. That's why I didn't understand when I couldn't find an F drive. I have purged the history and will run the tests again.

Please post an OverDrive link so that we can see what is taking place on your computer. Login and run OverDrive, then copy and paste the URL from the results page into your reply.

 

If you need help, there is a tutorial here:

Thank you for the OverDrive link. It is showing that the test history from June 4 has not been purged:

Open your OverDrive test results, click on Test History and click the link to purge the history.

Ok, I purged the test history again without having a scan open. here is the results. http://www.pcpitstop.com/betapit/sec.asp?conid=23610178 .

Oops, maybe I do have a f drive. I completely forgot about a drive I have hooked up through a usb port. When I looked inside the computer case, I only saw the one drive.(which is configured as two seperate drives). But I still don't know why the usb drive shows on the scan and not anywhere on my computer that I can find.

If the F drive is not showing in "My Computer" with the other drives, right-click on the "My Computer" icon and select Manage, then select Disk Management and it should be showing in there.

Unplug the F drive from the USB port, reboot the computer, then plug it back in and see if it detected under My Computer. If it is, then right-click and select Properties>Tools>Defrag.
