I have an SQLCE database which is stored my pen drive. Whenever I plug my pen drive into my computer I would like it to always mount to Y:. The reason for choosing Y: is because it is unlikely that the computers I work with will have any other device mounted to Y:.

Is there any way to force my computer to mount my pen drive to Y:?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You can manually assign your pen-drive to Y: using the steps below:

  • Right Click on Computer.
  • Select Manage.
  • Select Disk Management (make sure your pen-drive is plugged in so you can see it in the right-hand pane).
  • Right Click your pen-drive.
  • Click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  • On the popup, click the existing letter and click Change.
  • On the next popup, select the drive letter Y and press OK.
  • Press YES on the warning window, and you are done.

@JitendraJadav: Drive letter assignment is not stored on the drive itself, it is an OS function. – Karan Feb 27 '13 at 7:37
