External drive shows as internal
I have a Rosewill RX-DU100 Sata drive dock. Whenever I plug a HD into it on any of my W7 Pc's, it shows up as an internal drive. That's great for me as I use Carbonite and they only backup internal drives. I was wondering why W7 sees it as an internal and I could fool Windows into thinking other drives were internal as well?
