in my C drive that are just two of my external hard drives. I would either like them gone or to be given a really good reason to keep them.
I tried Google, can't remember at all what I searched for to figure out how to make these things
appear in the first place.
They're not shortcuts. Somehow I added fake folders that seem to be mirrors of these external hard drives.
I went to delete them and I got the "Are you sure you want to remove the folder and all it's contents?" message, which combined with the fact that the folders aren't there when the hard drive is unplugged makes me think that would be a very
There are two reasons I want them gone. The first is that XP sits for what seems like forever on the Windows Loading screen (like I start it up and then take a shower and when I get out it's still loading or at best it's just starting to load my profile slow). I unplugged the hard drives before I got in the shower this morning and XP loaded in what seemed like no time at all.
The second is that Ad-Aware goes through these like regular folders (which make up about 96% of my hard drive space) which makes me scan go from 33 gigs of space to almost 800. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with my drives be scanned. But if I can do it one drive at a time it would be so much easier.
So in short, I want these things
gone and I'm feeling like a real idiot for not remembering how I got them there in the first place. I'm also accepting reasons for why I should keep them and/or add the other external hard drive to the C folder in the same way.
