    Recently, I started up my mac to find a random drive showing on the desktop. It also shows up in the disk utility.

    While the disk utility says there are 47 files & 9 folders on this drive, when I open finder and look on it, there is nothing.

    I dont know what this drive is, where it came from or how to get rid of it.

    I can "eject" the drive, but when I reboot, its there again every time.

    I've tried to verify the disk in the disk utility but that didnt seem to effect anything at all. Repair permissions is not given as an option for it.

    Any other suggestions as to how it got there & how to get rid of it?

    Alright so I decided to try to just delete the partition.

    I went into the disk utility to do so and when I selected the volume to delete, I get an error:

    "Filesystem resize support required, such as HFS+ with journaling enabled"

    However, journaling on this volume is enabled (Format : Mac OS Extended (Journaled)), so I dont know why its giving me this error.

    I also cannot verify nor repair permissions on the partition as it has both options greyed out.

    any suggestions from this point?:confused:
