    Are you by chance running a 3rd party utilities that helps with "safely removing attached devices," and/or "cd-dvd EZ-kwik ejection"?
    Reason for asking: Some time ago, I ran such utilities for a couple of days, my hard-drives also showed up as "removable," so I removed the utilities. No more problem.

    3rd Party Utilities


    No I'm not using any 3rd party utilities. I think this problem stemmed from when I used the Samsung Magician software, and it created a partition I didn't really ask for. I didn't initially have the problem on Windows 7 pro but then it mysteriously appeared, which is exactly what happened on Windows 10 pro.

    I've looked into adding registry keys before so I am confident I can just add this in since I can go through all the sub folders to find Devices at the end. my only question is when I make a new addition am I making a new Key, String Value, Binary Value, DWORD, QWORD, Multi or Expandable String Value?

    Registry Key


    I figured out how to add it, I just saved the text file as .reg with what you wanted. I restarted and there's no change. Thanks for the help though!

    I'm sorry it doesn't work for you. It works on my system, I use Marvell SATA3/RAID add-on card in conjunction with "Standard SATA/AHCI Controller" driver. It should work for many HW controllers but only when you use the mentioned generic driver. You can see it in the picture although my system isn't English.

    Ya I don't use Marvel as far as I know.

    I guess I'll try the beta chipset update from ASUS and see how that goes since everyone's out of ideas.

    Well I downloaded the beta chipset drivers from ASUS and the SATA drivers on there for Windows 10, and the icon's still in my system tray. I wonder if I can just uninstall the Portable Device in my Device Manager, because when I right click on it in there I have the option of Disabling and Uninstalling. I know which one is for my Terabyte drive because I named it that, the only other one on there besides System Reserved is WPD FileSystem Volume Driver, which I'm not entirely sure is the portable version of my C drive that I also want to eliminate but I assume it is.

    @Redwolf:
    2 things:
    Did you clean install your OS, or is it an upgrade?

    Second:
    paste this in a Run box and see what the result is:
    explorer shell:::{a6482830-08eb-41e2-84c1-73920c2badb9}

    Clean Install


    I did a clean install. This problem showed up back when I had Windows 7 Pro, which was also a clean install.

    Ew it shows the whole drive as removable, not just a partition. Guess my uninstalling idea is out the window.
