    I've had trouble with drives not mounting which was corrected after formatting the drive.

    I had my wrist slapped some time back for having too much on the desktop, though nothing like Mannheim's 'maze'. I cleaned it up and it's no harder to find things than the way I used to work. Dare I ask - is it a Windows way or working?

    If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour.

    I personally have never had a drive not mount due to too much on the desktop but anything is possible. Too much there does slow down the desktop appearing on bootup from what I have seen on some systems.

    I had a friend who used to put every single thing on his Windows XP desktop. His system always seemed to drag and it was a fast gaming system.

    Found the pic. Makes me dizzy!
