Can you enter a name and see if it effects the USB Device.
It shouldn't, but it looks different without one.
Wouldn't this be the recovery partition set by Windows? That's what I've always presumed it was anyway.

One thing I am thinking, what about a printer? They some time have a Disk capability to them.
Do you have a printer connect? If so what is its Make/Model?
I do have a printer but I only connect it up when I need to use it so it's not connected right now.

Outfits like Dell usually install Recovery partitions in place of providing Installation DVDs.
I've never seen Windows direct from Microsoft make a Recovery partition.

It seems your other helper has you on a different track. I'll just watch for now and hope he resolves the issue.
I might even learn something from him. If not, I'll come to the rescue as any good Wizard would do.

I can confirm that it is a recovery partition on C: (Disk 0), it is the 3.42GB partition on there. I didn't actually install the OS (I have an unbranded OEM copy) so just presumed that this was standard during an installation.

No comment on your last. You could be in violation of site SOPs, but that is not my area of expertise.
I could point you to someone to ask, if you want to know.
You might want to secure a legitimate copy of Windows. Your call.

Edit: If you can't afford a certified copy of Windows 7, you might want to jump into the world of Linux. There OS's are free. Just a thought.

My copy is genuine, it is just an OEM copy that is not branded by a manufacturer like DELL or the like. I'm not going to purchase an 1,800 system and cheap on a pirated copy of an OS. All of my systems have legitimate copies of Windows on.

OK. Back to topic

Forgive me, but at this point, i've lost track of just what problem we're trying to solve.

@Boozad
Do you still care about the screwy disk name? Does everything seem to otherwise work? or where do you want to go from here?

I'm not really bothered about the name of the disk no, and I think it's pretty much been confirmed that both that weird drive and the Windows Portable Device (which has reappeared in Device Manager following a reboot) are the result of the AI Suite III's USB3.0 Boost function. It does bother me a little that I can't seem to get rid of these drives but I do have an idea or two which may resolve that. One would to be uninstall AI Suite III and see what happens, failing that I could uninstall my Extensible Host Controller (this applies to one of my front USB 3.0 ports coming from the midboard header) and reinstall. Theoretically one of those should remove these annoyances.

But no, there is no impairment to the system performance so it's not a major issue. If I ever get rid of them I'll update the thread.

One curiosity question (if and should you feel like looking).

When you view Devices by Connection right click the USB Mass Storage device parent of the ???? Disk. Select Properties->Details. Use the pull down menu to report Hardware IDs. Copy/paste the result. The IDs for the parent device may be a clue.
