Unable to remove directory mount point in Windows XP
Posted on 2011-10-27
I am unable to remove a directory mount point in WIndows XP. I am able to remove the drive letter itself (for example G:\) according to the procedure below, but not able to remove a directory mount (for example C:\Drivemaps\Drive G). I am owner of the map C:\Drivemaps and I have full control. I receive the message "The drive path cannot be deleted because access is denied".
How to remove a drive letter
To remove an existing drive letter on a drive, on a partition, or on a volume, follow these steps:
Log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance.
Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the removal.
Thanks in advance
