How to change a Drive Letter
To change a drive letter, either click the “Task” menu, or right-click the drive in the list and use the resulting context menu.
Mount your drive to an NTFS folder
Volume Mount Points are specialized NTFS file system objects which are used to mount an entry point to other volumes. Mounting a drive to a folder path has its pros and cons. For example, doing so allows us to access a drive from anywhere. If you want to hide a drive from other users just mount a drive to a folder path and delete its drive letter. Another example: if you’re already sharing content on your network, you probably have one or more network mapped drives. The problem is, as you add more drives to the network, you are also adding more map points to the system. A better to way to host content might instead be to have a single mapped drive with many mount point folder paths. Drive Letter Changer can easily mount a drive letter to a folder path; just right click a drive and choose “Mount in Empty NTFS Folder”.
Use the Task menu or right-click menu to remove a drive letter, or copy a volume name. The Tools menu includes Disk Management, Run Mountvol, Remove Old Mounted Data, and Restart Windows Explorer. “Run Mountvol” will list possible values for volume name, as well as current mount points.
In a command prompt, running “dChanger.exe /?” (no quotes) will list all available parameters. See also the screenshot the following.
