    If you type explorer shell:::{a6482830-08eb-41e2-84c1-73920c2badb9} into a Run box, those should be the only drives deemed as Removable, (Delegate), folders.

    Well the key thing is what happens when you try to access drive D by double clicking? Does it access it or do you get an error? That information would help alot.

    This shows me all of my actual removable drives, but also includes the E:/ drive, which is a SATA drive like the ones that aren't showing up. Also, again, all 3 SATA drives showed up as removable before the clean install. Now only the one that was plugged in during the clean install is showing up as removable.

    Seems that SATA drives plugged in during a clean install get considered removable, but after that they don't..??

    I have mentioned a few times now that the drives work perfectly fine. They simply don't show up in the removable drive spot like they did previously, and I kinda liked having them there.

    It's also just interesting to me that as of now 1 of 3 SATA drives is showing up as removable. Why that one?

    Is there any difference between the SATA ports they are connected to on the motherboard? For example, one connected to an Intel SATA port, and the other 2 to Marvell SATA ports.

    If so, see if having them connected to the same type of ports as the one showing as removable.

    angelleye, Did you try Brink's other suggestion?

    You might have to toggle the Nav pane presentation
    - remove drives from the Nav pane,
    - restart File Explorer,
    - add drives to the Nav pane,
    - restart File Explorer.

    That's a good thought my x58 MB also has JMicron Sata Ports ( and intel and Marvel) and if the wrong Driver is installed for them , all drives connect to that Controller, show as removable as the driver tell windows they are Esata Drives not Sata Drives.
