I recnetly noticed a drive listed in my computer its called Local Disk (Q:) . It wasn't there befor and i can't access the drive at all according to windows its 0 bytes and has no file system... So then why is windows seeing it?

Do you have anything plugged into a usb port such as majicjack, usb stick, camera device, etc..? Devices like majicjack or even software such as alcohol 120 will load a imaged drive on your system. Drive letter Q is an odd lettering as it usually gives the next available drive letter not in use.

Did you install any new devices/software on your system prior to seeing this?...

I agree with previous post, something has installed a virtual drive by the look of things, alcohol 120 or similar type of program.

Thats just it i haven't installed anything in the last 2 months it just appeared there. I can't think of any program that would add it all i have is deamon tools and its only set to add one drive. Which is working fine. Its not listed in disk management either its a ghost drive hideing from the OS for some reason...

There are previous threads with the same problem. Search THG for "Q Drive"

I thinking is has something to do with "Virtual" drives. I couldn't find the answer in the thread I replied on. Sorry.

That is what created the Q Drive under Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers. I have Deamon tools installed and have a "Q" drive even tough the drive letter shown in Explorer is "X:\".

It was Office 2010 i uninstalled it and the "Q" disappeared. I think it was Q from star trek trying to be funny lol. Uninstalled deamon tools and it was still there so I guess office 2010 is just wierd...

in the drive order, was the virtual drive from Daemon Tools "R" so when you installed Office the next drive letter was "Q"
