Non-existent external drive detected
« on: July 18, 2020, 02:39:47 PM »
Hi. Every time my laptop wakes up from sleep I get the following notification "External drive connected  THNSF5256GPUK TOSHIBA  SCAN FOR THREATS..." I don't have any Toshiba gadgets and there are no external drives connected. I have already tried the Repair App function but the message is still showing. It's not a major problem - I can close the message and a scan reveals no issues - but is this something I need to worry about?
Many thanks
