    Uninstall Paragon and then reboot into Windows and take a look. If the problem is gone then the problem is Paragon HFS+.

    It's your SD/xD/whatever multicard reader.

    To fix it, open file explorer, click the "View" menu item.

    Click the "Options" button in the newly opened view tab.

    Switch to the "View" tab in the options dialog.

    Tick "Hide Empty Drives" and apply.

    Edit: og I see, you tried that.

    Open Device Manager by right clicking in the very bottom left corner of the screen, and selecting Device Manager.

    Look under "Disk Drives" and disable everything sdcard related.


    If problem persists, try...

    Open Command Prompt as administrator.

    Enter command "diskpart"

    then in disk part prompt, enter command "list volume"

    When you see the drive letters causing problems note left most number for each line.

    Enter command "select volume n"
    (n being the number you noted for each one)

    Then enter command "unassign"

    Repeat "select volume n" & "unasign" for each problem drive letter.

    HFS+ might be assigning drive letters to Apple's lame overused hidden partitions, if diskpart doesn't list them or has issues, then HFS+ software is assigning drive letters in a stupid way via DefineDosDevice() WinAPI. There are ways to delete those, but if you don't know how, you're better off not deleting symbolic links to named objects out of the global namespace trying.
