what site did you try to use? Just curious :)

So drive only shows in File explorer?

1. Run command prompt as administrator;
2. Then type the commands in turn:
  • diskpart
  • list volume (here shows you the list which volume has letter)
  • select volume X (X is a volume number when you want to remove)
  • remove letter=Z (Z is a selected volume letters, run the command to remove the ghost hard drive letter instead of partition.)
3. If that works, restart to check if it is solved.
