no Acronis installed, and i now have the usb drive disconnected. it's still there. The mystery drive i mean. not sure what to do. The computer works fine, it just bothers me that it's there and not supposed to be. i like to keep things neat and well maintained on all my computers. oh well, if anyone has any more suggestions on how to get rid of this drive, it would be great. otherwise i guess ill just leave it be.
