      map --unhook

    What this hapened?

    • When you started your computer, the USB disk got first number, 0, amd the internal one second, which is very rare case and to prevent accidental damage of the internal disk program checks and refuses to operate with disk 0.
      Most likely all you need to do is to reboot the computer with the USB disk disconnected and once Windows is loaded plug it back in and continue.
