Question

I recently purchased a HP SimpleSave 320 GB external hard drive. When I connect it to my computer, the SimpleSave software automatically runs and wants to backup my files. I just want to use it as an external drive, not an automatic backup. Is there a way to completely remove or disable the HP software? Can I simply re-format the drive?

Thanks!

Just brought HP Simple Save 1 TB USB Drive. I also tried to remove HP Launcher but without success. I have however managed to disable same.
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Open DVD.CD ROM Drives
Right Click HP Virtual CD 4607 Usb entry
Click Disable (Red cross appears)
O.K and Exit
Reboot computer and HP Launcher should be disabled.
This will not remove virtual drive letter nor recover space on drive but in my case
seems to have at least stopped automatic backups on my XP system.
