|Apparently there's some setting that causes USB drives (the moment their plugged in) to scan the contents as seen in an autoplay popup.|
Aside from some flash drives that don't do that, ie; I think FAT32's don't/won't, and aside from the obvious reply about checking autoplay settings, for those drives that this happens on, given that I've set autoplay to 'do nothing', I don't understand why this is happening and only on about half my external drives.
I usually keep system restore turned off, assured that indexing (allow) and recycle bin (immediately delete) settings are the same for all drives, so might somone have an idea how to stop this little annoyance?
I think I tried disabling indexing for one USB drive, but still most USB (storage drives are all NTFS) autoplay scanned before I can access them and I can't find any differences between the drives that scan and those that don't.
Could the answer either involve turning off indexing on the pc "and" the external drive, that or maybe drives that are partitioned, must be autoplay scanned and those w/o partitions, don't?
