Windows has its own view about what's a 'removable' drive and what is
not. Some testing indicates that the bigger the drive, the less Windows
will treat it as 'removable'. But that's just my experience - I could be
completely wrong. Or maybe it has to do with which driver is used to
mount the drives.
Anyway: it's the Windows API GetDriveType() which returns those values
which are not always as you think they should be.
