Windows 7: Removal of noname folder in Computer folder

Removal of noname folder in Computer folder

Cannot delete a noname empty system folder under Computer caused by deletion of the name only of a 16Gb USB network drive of a D-Link DIR-635 router network. I am having trouble configuring the router for a printer and a USB HD (the 16Gb drive is the test drive). I think this noname folder is part of my router configuration problem.

Explorer shows my C:, D:, E: and F: (DVD) drives and under them an empty noname folder. I can access Desktop under DOS (at Admin level) but that does not show the Computer and drive details. I have run Unlocker but without effect.

Advice on how can I get rid of this noname folder will be much appreciated.

You really need to post in the forums for the make of router you have. Any device connected to the router is controlled by the routers firmware/software not by your computers operating system.

Login to the router and configure the storage and print options.

What is in a Name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Plug the USB drive directly into a PC and then try deleting the folder. If that doesn't work consider formatting the USB thumb drive.
