Autoplay is parsing HD


Recommended Posts

I have Retrospect Express 6.5.342. I got it bundled with a WD external HD. I've installed the program and it seems to be doing a great job backing up the C: drive (except for the open file errors).

However, something is causing the WindowsXP autoplay feature to parse the WDHD and find the first multimedia file it comes across and offers the "What action do you want to take" dialog.

It does this every few minutes all day long.

Does XP see the WDHD as a CD-ROM? It shows to be a HD in Windows Explorer and acts like a hard drive.

I did select the WDHD icon in My Computer and selected "Take No Action" concerning the autoplay function.

Can someone tell me how to disable the very annoying behavior?
