Well it seems that my system is considering my USB HD as removable storage at least my partioner programm says so (see my thread above) it is listed in the windows disk management programme as CF (Compact Flash);
I never heard that there exist Compact Flash storage devices of 1 Terrabyte.
bullshit; I just saw in wikipedia the following paragraph:
"in November 2010, Sandisk, Sony and Nikon proposed a next generation card format targeted at high-definition camcorders and high-resolution digital photo cameras; not backward compatible, the proposed format would come in a similar form factor as CF/CFast but be based on PCI Express instead of ATA and would offer read speed of 500 Mbyte/s and storage capabilities beyond 2 TiB.
It remains unclear, if the CFA will adopt this proposal, as CF 5.0 already supports media up to 128 PiB and CF 6.0 adds speeds up to 167 Mbyte/s, while the SATA-based CFast already defines speeds up to 300 Mbyte/s. so windows has to do something ."
By the way my HD is not a card but has the form of a HDD.
Anyway, windows is recognising it as CF and so as removable.I consider that as a bug; and a big size of 1TB is in small private systems ohnly handable if partioned.
I aim not used to the windows system; is there any contact point where one can report such a bug?
