|I had an external HD connected to my laptop, but a power-surge at the plug blew the adaptor. This broke the mechanics within my External HD whilst it was connected to the laptop.|
I've accepted that it is broken, and am currently investigating retrieving the data.
However it has also left the drive shown on My Computer - even when the device has been removed.
It shows as 'Local Disk (Q: )' on My Computer.
I don't appear to be able to get rid of it. I don't have permissions to delete it apparently, it has no properties. It doesn't show in device manager.
I don't have any virtual drives, I don't have any SD cards or card readers attached.
This happened a few days ago, in that time I've rebooted a few times but the drive is still shown.
How can I get rid of this?
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.
Thanks in advance
