Windows 10: Replacement OS SSD appears as external drive in system tray, why?

    Replacement OS SSD appears as external drive in system tray, why?


    I recently bought a 1Tb Samsung 850 Evo to replace my 250Gb 850 Evo. I used the Samsung software to transfer my OS(C and Games(D to the new drive and everything went fine, however, I noticed the other day that this new 850 1Tb drive is now showing up in system tray as some sort of external type drive.
    Never had this with the previous 850 250Gb drive nor with any HDD so I was wondering why this is so. 'My PC' is as it should be, so no problem there.
    Any ideas, can it be removed?


    Cheers,

    Tom.

    Boot into BIOS and look at the port where you connected the 1TB SSD if it set to hot plug, if so, disable it.

    Normally under Advanced->Integrated Peripherals
