    I just found this thread. I already turned off the option in Devices --> USB. I checked the corresponding registry entry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\USB and it is already set to 0. Nontheless, I keep receiving a notification about an error in the drive, like the image posted above.

    I know why. It is a multiboot linux usb pendrive formatted in FAT32, with a linux MBR. It is perfectly readable\writable both in Windows and in Linux. There are no issues at all with the drive. Windows should just stop notifying me about this "error". But it doesn't. ???

    Yeah, I noticed that this doesn't always seem to stop the error messages yet.
