    Can you return it to a non bootable state do you mean.

    Yes just format it in windows and it wont boot any more.

    Thanks for inquiring... but TechSpot only let
    s moderators close threads. So no more work on your part now that your problem is solved (but how nice of you to ask and offer to do so!) :)

    just fyi: There's no need to lose the BOOTABLE feature -- just use it as you need,
    just don't have it inserted when starting the system and the bootable ext drive will
    perform as you expect.

    you might like to create a special root level directory eg \MYFILES on that
    drive to avoid mixing your data with the bootable system :)
