On my Windows 10 system I have the following drive letters assigned:
- C:\ SSD (The system drive)
- D:\ HDD (has junction from C:\Users)
- E:\ Blu-Ray optical drive
- F:\ DVD optical drive
- G:\ external HDD
- I:\ through L:\ for card reader
Notice that H:\ is missing, which is by design. I do not want to use H: as a drive letter, as it causes problems with Radeon Settings. However, whenever I plug something in that has never been assigned a drive letter, the system assigns H:. Is there any way to get Windows 10 to never assign this drive letter?
I seem to remember a window in XP or 7 where you could uncheck certain drive letters, thereby making them unavailable, but I cannot find this in Windows 10 (and it may have been solely for the availability of network drive letters). Google searches have turned up some references to Disk Management, but that only allows one to remove a drive letter already assigned to a device. I also found a reference here on Superuser to "mountvol" but that doesn't seem to fit the bill either.
Edit:Here's a link to the problem-report opened on AMD's website. Their "solutions" aren't exactly helpful.
