Drive Letter Changer is a portable freeware tool to simplify the process of assigning a specific drive letter to a hard drive or external storage device. You could do this with the Windows Disk
Management tool , but this can be confusing for the novice.
Installation is not required. Just extract the ZIP to the folder of your choice, and run the program. The user interface is simplified and provides quick access to all the main options. It lists all your drives and the drive letter currently assigned to them.

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.
NOTE: To change Assignet letters without error please use /Force parameter

Seems like it might be a nice tool, but where is the button to actually download it, as opposed to numerous things I don’t want
Nice tool, here is an idea :
saving "save as…" encrypted *.set file the actual drive letter seting with the following options.
as well as an open option.
1. phyical drives (HWiD) and / or optional
+ mounted local drives (HWID) non MS filesystems
+ maped (net use) Network drives via UNC or better identification option
Please consider let it work for target OS under PE system.
Notes about Drive-Letters – Das unterschätzte Problem
1. Früher gaben PartitionierungsTool ständig Hinweise, daß die Daten auf einer Partition für immer verloren sind.
Man konnte die fehlenden Laufwerksbuchstaben übersehen – viele APPs können heute immer noch nicht in allen Fällen Laufwerkksbuchstaben zuweisen.
Hier hilft tatsächlich nur Windows. Die eigenen Bordmittel lassen in der Regel immer einen Laufwerksbuchstaben zuweisen, und sämtliche, verloren geglaubten Daten sind wie von Zauberhand wieder da.
2. MiniTool Partition Wizard ist besser als AOMEI – beide tun sich aber schwer mit der Zuweisung von Laufwerksbuchstaben.
3. Minitool Partition Wizard weist manchmal zwar erfolgreich Laufwerksbuchstaben zu, kurze Zeit später sind diese ohne Hinweis verschwunden und ebenso kein Zugriff auf die Daten möglich.
AOMAI bietet öfter mal diese Option garnicht an. Daher kam ich auch erst auf MiniTool.
Notes about Drive Letters – The Underestimated Problem
1. In the past, partitioning tools kept giving hints that the data on a partition was lost forever.
One could overlook the missing drive letters – many APPs are still not able to assign drive letters in all cases.
Only Windows really helps here. Your own on-board resources usually always allow you to assign a drive letter, and all data believed to be lost are there again as if by magic.
2. MiniTool Partition Wizard is better than AOMEI, but they both have a hard time assigning drive letters.
3. Minitool Partition Wizard sometimes successfully assigns drive letters, but a short time later these have disappeared without notice and the data cannot be accessed either.
AOMAI often doesn’t offer this option at all. That’s why I first came across MiniTool.
Thank you , so glad to have sordum (Hocam Allah razı olsun senden iyi ki varsın sen ya.)
Is that possilble to add more usefull drive info into the tool? I mean MBR/GPT info; drive number; drive space and so on…
Terima kasih banyak….
On the lastest Windows 10 x64 (build 18363.657) the new Drive Letter Changer (x64) v1.4 often closes unexpectedly and intermittently. I can reproduce these unwanted ‘closes’ by: 1) Change a drive letter on any existing drive. 2) Click on the ‘Help’ drop-down from the menu bar. 3) Program pauses and then closes unexpectatedly.
Please fix this annoyance on this otherwise awesome utility! Thanks, -JT
Thanks for your feedback , Could you please test the cmd parameters too , Because for example in my Windows 7 Ultimate both version works without Problem.
Thanks for quick reply.
Happy to report test v1.4 file opens correctly. On few operations and tools tried it works correctly.
Is this 32bit or 64bit version?
Only curious. Happy with either version as long as it works. KPaul
