I have come across an interesting problem... I have a virtual drive program which naturally allows for setting 1 to multiple virtual drives and assigns letters to its drives in sequence... I also have multiple USB ports and as we all know, they assign in the same manner. Here is the issue: USB Flash drives have taken the letter G and it cannot be used now for any other drives - BUT - Letter G is the next sequential assignment for other drives. Let me see if I can explain this -- Although my Virtual Drive program is always allowed 1 virtual drive, the V-Drive always takes drive letter H or higher instead of G (which is the next in line in the program) but the USB has taken that letter and will not release it for use. In the V-drive program, Letter G is showing as available for use but it will NOT change to G - Windows Disk Manager shows letter G as missing - hence in use by another program/drive/etc. I have tried setting "Virtual Drives = 0" then back to 1 drive... I have tried reassigning USB drive letters but all this does is make G disappear completely - as if it is locked for USB only... What I want is this... OS Drive = C: Secondary drive = D: Additional Partition = E: Internal Optical = F: Virtual Drive = G: USB's = H: and above I cannot figure this out... Why the V-program shows G as available but Windows says it is not... what is keeping it from being assigned... How can I get G: Released from being used as the USB assignment so it can be assigned to the Virtual Drive?
