    Default Win 2000pro always checks floppy drive

    Whe, deleting, copying, or choosing "properties" on ANY file or folder, Windows 2000 is does a quick check on the floppy drive - UBER ANNOYING, coz it takes time, and makes the most annoying sound.

    i have no idea if you can stop that in w2k or not but the other solution is to get a quiet floppy drive.

    Yeah, I put a floppy in there... but it is still checking it, that's the annoying part, it takes a second or two to check, that's just a pain, surely I can stop it from whirring away.. It doesn't need to do it, so it shouldn't. HEELLLPPPP!

    I think this problem is due to a program or possibly Win2k caching folders and files for faster access off drives. Sometimes it caches the A: and always checks on it.

    I can't remember the steps to stopping it as it was a while ago that I dealt with it. It could possibly be a registry tweak or removing/disabling a service.

    Sorry I couldn't help that much.
