    Missing Drives in Navigation Pane?


    Hello, just got Windows 10 Technical Preview and was a little confused by this... For some reason three of my hard drives are visible in the navigation pane as root items down the left, but the other four are not... What makes those three so special? How do I customize this?

    :)

  2. How to navigate to a point in Nokia Drive on WP ?

    When using nokia drive on Windowsphone, how do you navigate to a location without knowing the address or postcode. ?



    On nokia mpas on symbian you simply hold the point on the screen,and you can then either save it, navigate to it or all of the above.



    unless I'm totally missing something then this functionality is totally missing on Nokia Drive what a step bakwards



    If I search for a place (such as a postcode) then having found this point I look/browse the area to find car parking, there is no way to select the location to navigate there, similarly if I browse to a location, it is impossible to get it to just navigate
    to the current displayed location....



    Am I right and this basic and really useful functionality has gone, or what have I missed ?

  3. Local Disk Missing From Navigation Pane Desktop

    The picture and title says it all. The navigation pane on the left shows a list of drives. The D drive is missing. It is also missing if I click on the desktop icon in the navigation pane. This desktop is a combination of the actual desktop (which doesn't
    show the drives at all) and devices, drives, network locations, etc. I have tried everything I can think of to restore it, including downloading and running the Microsoft windows file explorer fix utility.

  4. Missing Drives in Navigation Pane?

    Are they all Internal Disks? Or are the ones showing on the left External Hard Drives?

    Ah good point, yeah I believe those are the externals on the left. Is that it then, externals get navigation pane treatment and internals don't? Those aren't exactly portable drives I carry about with me, they're externally powered storage drives that never move, so I'd prefer they not appear on the left...

  6. I believe they are picked up as "Removable" as opposed to "Portable" and yes, it looks like that's way they are the only ones showing up on the left.

    Ok well, that's a fairly satisfying answer I guess. I'd still like to know if it's possible to remove them from the list, or to add my internals... Basically I just want more control over it, cus at the mo, it seems messy to me.
