    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?

    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...

    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.
