Pooled drive still showing in Windows Explorer.

Question

My apologies if this has already been discussed, but I recently added a 10 TB WD drive to my Windows 10 pool using 2.2.3.1019.  Drivepool rebalanced everything just fine, but Windows Explorer can still see the new drive as an individual disk with its own drive letter.

This has me a bit weirded-out, as my other pooled drives are invisible to Explorer, which seems like "normal" behavior.  Do I need to manually go into disk management and remove the drive letter?  Or does Drivepool do more than that to hide pooled drives?

Just remove the driveletter manually. I think it’s on purpose since you might want to keep some files on the drive but out of the pool, that’s why Drivepool doesn’t perform that task automatically.

Okay, but just to be crystal clear, Drivepool will still be able to access and use the drive once the letter is removed?  And that's all that's needed?  Nothing off-the-wall, like doing some registry tinkering?
