Unable to remove "shortcuts" of a harddrive.


Hey guys!

My friend has experienced a strange issue, in his personal folder (the one with your computers name) he has four "shortcuts" to a harddrive.
The strange thing about this is that I don't know how to remove them.

It looks like this:

He would like to be able to remove them, has anybody else had this problem and knows how to fix it?

Have you tried to just 'right-click' on those drive icons and choose "eject"?

What happens when you open Folder Options--> View tab, and select the "Hide empty drives in the Computer folder" radio button?

Not working as in the "eject" option is not there.

That box was already checked, so that's as it should.

Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.
