    new drive named local disk(z) is appearing

    Solved... at least for me.

    I tried some of the other suggested methods to get rid of "local disk (z) with no success.

    However, a simple System Restore to an earlier version removed the mystery disk Z: completely.

    Thank you for your quick response.

    It could be a compatibility issue with the latest update and your local disk. We suggest updating your disk driver. Follow these steps:

    • On the Start, type Device Manager.
    • Locate and select Disk drives.
    • Right-click on your disk drive, select Properties.
    • Go to the Driver tab and choose Update Driver.
    • Once done, click OK.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.
