    Office 2010 Drive Q

    I thought I'd post this as information, if it needs to be moved or removed, feel free to do so.

    I've seen a few threads with people asking where this mysterious Q drive has come from.
    This is created by the Office Home and Business 2010 Beta Click-to-Run Installer for High Speed Internet...

    Here's a link to Office 2010 faq's,
    Microsoft Office 2010 Beta FAQ

    On a side note to this, Someone asked, "What if you already have a Q Drive on your computer?"

    I thought that was a good question so I created a small Q drive
    and then tried to run the installer and This is what I got below.

    So if you have a Q drive it will not let you proceed with the Install.

    I'm sure this will get buried in a few days, but thought I'd share it anyway.:)

    There are more possible sources for virtual drives. If e.g. you mount an image of Paragon or Macrium, you also get virtual drives (as many as you mount images - I wonder what happens when they run out of letters). Good thing is that they disappear after reboot.
