Testdisk to remove Virtual CD volume/partitions?

#1 Post by SteveB »


I have a bunch of HP drives that all contain a Virtual CD drive/phantom bloatware volume. When ever I mount my drive, a Virtual CD shows up with garbage HP software I don't want. When I eject it, it just re-appears a moment later. Very frustrating.

These show up in Disk Utility but are read only ((null)), and Testdisk also does not see them.

Is there a way to locate them via Testdisk, and delete them?
