I'm trying to get Vim all decked out with some fancy plugins on my work laptop but I am running into some issues.

Using echo &rtp I can see that Vim will look in several directories for startup files, including the H: drive.

My problem is that H: is a network drive at work and I don't want to have anything Vim related in that drive. Additionally I disconnect from the network at times so it would be a problem.

I installed CtrlP and it is only indexing this H drive which has nothing in it so obviously it is not providing any benefit. All of my code is under a directory off C:.

When I launch NERDTRee it displays NERD_tree_1 - (H:\). In order to get other plugins to work I hardcoded the path (I use vim-plug):

call plug#begin('C:/Program Files (x86)/Vim/vimfiles/.vim/plugged)

I'm probably missing something obvious right in front of my face. I do have other plugins installed and they are working. My environment: Windows 7 gVim 8

  • If I understand you correctly, you're saying that you don't know how "H:" is getting added to your runtime path and you'd like to get it out of there? – user72 Jan 16 '18 at 16:41
  • Note there is a typo in the call plug#begin line (missing closing '). Is this also in your vimrc, or is that a copy/paste error? – Martin Tournoij Jan 16 '18 at 17:57
  • Yes that was a copy paste error, my bad. @Jsoh Petrie, yes I'd like to get that H the h out of there. – AvacadoRancher Jan 16 '18 at 18:18
