Need to set up a new drive but have run out of drive letters

I need to setup a new drive (like a mapped drive) but I don't have any drive letters left. I remember doing this a long time ago but I don't remember how to do it now. I remember setting up a folder and being able to access the drive through the folder. I think I had to go into disk manager and do something. Can you please help me.

Thanking you in advance....

Right click on "My Computer"
Then click "Map Network Drive"
Choose the Drive letter you want

sounds like you've done this before, just forgot where it's at..

right click the partition to map in disk management & click on 'change drive letters and paths'

click add.. then click browse under 'mount in the following empty ntfs folder'

point to the folder to use (make a new one if necessary)

the folder has to be empty and located on an ntfs partition.
