    Windows 10 File Explorer Keeps Opening

    I attached a portable USB Seagate drive to my computer. The drive seems to be operating normally, except the computer dings and the file Explorer opens about every five minutes. Does anyone know of what's going on? How can I fix this? It's driving... Ha... Get it... Driving me crazy!

    Hello mmshipon, :)

    If you like, turn off AutoPlay for "Removable drive" by setting it to "Take no action" to see if that may help.
