How to reserve a letter
Posted on 2004-10-21
This is a workgroup environment, all computers with WinXP Pro SP1.
Now, the configuration is : 2 primary partitions, one for recovery, containing images, and the other, the active and bootable one.
so you C:\ that is the WinXP drive.
Now, account used are Power Users that doesn't allow to change anything in Disk Management.
I don't want to use the administrator group.
So the D:\ is reserve and hidden for the users.
But the "bug" is that when they plug any USB devices (most of the time, mini USB key), most of the time, the D:\ is attribuated, but not accessible...
So, either, you use a little trick, like to connect 2 USB devices -> you use the E:\
Or, I have to log with an administrative account and change the drive letter, but the only problem is when I m not present, the other guy are not able to change the drive letter...
How can I do, what line should I add or modify to reserve the D:\ letter.
I know that under Win98, you would have to change the line in the config.sys, but I am not sure under WinXP.
Thanks for the help.
