The Remove-PSDrive cmdlet deletes temporary Windows PowerShell drives that were created by using the New-PSDrive cmdlet

Beginning in Windows PowerShell 3.0, Remove-PSDrive also disconnects mapped network drives, including, but not limited 
to, drives created by using the Persist parameter of New-PSDrive.

Remove-PSDrive cannot delete Windows physical or logical drives.

Beginning in Windows PowerShell 3.0, when an external drive is connected to the computer, Windows PowerShell automatica
lly adds a PSDrive to the file system that represents the new drive. You do not need to restart Windows PowerShell. Sim
ilarly, when an external drive is disconnected from the computer, Windows PowerShell automatically deletes the PSDrive 
that represents the removed drive.
