    Drive Letters Moved


    I didn't know where else to post this. All of a sudden I lost some usb 2.0 & all 3.0 ports and my C: drive is now F:.
    I tried to remove my usb hubs so windows could re-detect them. No go. I deleted the partition on my ssd to reinstall and
    I still have a drive partition C:. I think one of my usb ports is using C: but have no way to prove it.
    So basicly I am asking where the usb drive letters are stored if not in the Windows partition ? The "bios" is UEFI if that matters and a Asus z-87 deluxe mobo. Would a bios reset be an option ? This machine has been running ok until now.

    As you can tell I am confused and have built machines for my use before.

    :)

    Accidentally saved my documents folder to the Hard drive (DDrive Letters Moved :) without a location

    Or you can click and hold on the folder and drag it to the drive letter.

    This should move the folder from User to the drive.

    Windows 10 drive letter

    You can manually rename each drive, click file manager, locate the drive, right-click and rename.

    You can manually change the drive letters, right-click start, Disk Management.

    Right-click each other drive (not c: drive) and Click change drive letters and path.

    You might need to do it twice, once to move D: to another letter to free up D:, then allocate D: and so on.

    One place to start is in Disk Management. On Win10 I right-click This PC in File Manager then click Manage.

    I deleted the partition to reinstall. Trying to do a clean install, Win 10 wants a gpt disk instead of mbr. It is a
    120gig ssd !

    Conversion is possible from MBR to GPT, using a command line utility called gptgen or EaseUS Partition Master.

    I got it up and running. Got the iso on a usb stick and the damn thing installed without a burp. Restored an image.

    This crap was really typical Windows stuff is all I can say.
