Dear all

My system is assigning 2 drive letters to a non-partitioned hard drive. If I right-click on "my computer" and go to "manage", only 1 drive letter is shown. But when I use windows explorer and other tools to browse around my computer 2 drive letters are shown.

Is there anyway to get rid of this?

Many thanks

Hi brimful,

Please try start => Run => type "CMD" and press enter to open a dos console.
There type:
Subst X: /D
(replace X: for the unwanted drive letter, so not the driveletter attached by disk management)

Greetings,

LucF
