drive would be a meta tag.
We don't like meta tags because they require more information in the question or in other tags for them to be useful. They are rarely useful on their own.
For example: for your drive, what kind of "drive", is it a USB drive, a floppy drive, a cd-rom drive, a hard disk drive or even an SSD? All these things perform a similar basic function, but they function in very different ways.
For this reason is has been deemed necessary to force the issue and make "drive" point to something, in this case a hard-drive, by making it a synonym. If you don't mean hard-drive then you should delete it and use another more specific tag than drive.
If you can't be specific enough about your problem to know what kind of drive is involved, or even if one is at all, then drive is not the tag you need.
