Photo command on ext HDD

Each time I plug my terabyte HDD into my laptop, it automatically brings up and displays one particular photo from one of my photo folders in one of the partitions of my terabyte HDD. I have no idea why or why it chose this one photo. I had to delete the photo because it bugged me that it kept trying to display it immediately upon HDD connection each day that i get to work and plug it in and now it just says "photo cannot be displayed" (obviously, because I deleted it). What is causing this? Thanks, in advance. Michael M

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It almost sounds like that whenever the hard drive was plugged in, you had a automatic mapping to the folder and it would bring up the picture.  Did you?  If you did, I would disconnect the hard mapping and just the mapping take effect whenever you plug it in.  If you are determined to have it set for a specific drive letter, then leave the mapping alone but you will get a drive not found when you first boot up the laptop until you plug in the hard drive.  On the other side of that, if the hard drive is plugged in when you bootup, the time it will take to startup will be increased depending on on much you have starting at the beginning and also your AV checking out the harddrive.
