There is a small bug in Windows that I would like to create a small application as a solution for. So, in my company we have several network drives ( F:\, G:\, H:\, I:\ etc.) and sometimes if I connect an external USB device such as a card reader, windows will assign an already used drive letter. So for example, I have a network drive F:\, and I connect my card reader which windows will also assign F:\ to this device, so I cant use that USB device, until I change it's drive letter.
So my question's are:
- How can I detect these devices or drive letters when they are assigned twice?
- How can I detect which one of them is a USB device?
- How can I reassign a drive letter to that device?
I want to do this in C.
