Looks like something was either mapped or used SUBST to set a directory as the A: drive.  You should be able to right click and disconnect it so that it doesn't show up in the future.

That is in your Quick Access. You need to unpin it from Quick Access to remove it. Should be an option on the right-click menu.

 

There's a bug in Windows, by the way, that if you pin a removable drive to Quick Access, and File Explorer is set to open to Quick Access, File Explorer will hang trying to enumerate the content of the disconnected drive. This also results in eventual crashing of programs like Word when using the Open or Save dialog boxes.

Interesting. Did you have a drive on the network mapped at any point? Is it possible to reconnect the network drive and then unmap it?

I typed in the cmd and it said network connection can not be found. I never had a network A that i was aware of before this appeared.

Hey there,

 

i had the same problem. First some questions, do you have installed cybereason ransomfree? And have you checked your system if there are every few hours

some folders created with random files with diffrent endings in it? If yes, this is a tactic of ransomfree to trick ransomware into encrypting those first, so ransomfree

can react and stop this process before your data is being encrypted. Same with the network share which is disconnected. You can open it by the way and look into it.

There are the same random files as in those generated folders.

 

Greetings
