"Generic Mount Point Devices" in Device Manager - New question regarding erik_carlstrom's reply
Last year we had a post abotu a generic mount point device in Device manager we noticed with Norton Ghost 15. A symtantec technical manager (erik carlstrom) seemed to clarify what it was at the time. We have noticed it again on more than one machine, it seems whenever the NG software is uninstalled and reinstalled it occurs. Going off what the Symantec employee (Erik) originally said, is it best to remove it or leave the irrelevant entry (or entries) there?
Seems like it only occurs on machines that have had an uninstall/reinstall of NG 15 so it seems like it's something left behind (even the Norton Removal Tool didn't seem to get rid of it). On machines that only had NG installed once (and no other Ghost varients such as older versions, BESR, etc) it seems only the hidden one is there. However, each uninstall/reinstall seems to add one with a yellow exclamation point.
Should they manually be removed? Is it of concern or can it impact backups in anyway?
