    Resource monitor shows drive C: with different letter after adding new internal drive.


    Hi,


    I have a desktop computer with a few HDDs installed.


    Yesterday I added a new drive and formatted it using Disk Management tool.


    The tool suggested drive H: which I accepted.


    I then rebooted the machine.


    When opening Resource monitor I noticed that C: drive letter was now showing up as H:\1 and the new drive as H:.


    However File Explorer showed C: and H: as did the command shell.


    If I disconnected drive H: then resource monitor showed C: drive correctly.


    So is this a hardware issue?


    Thanks in advance for any help.

    :)
     

  2. 2nd and 3rd hard drives show two drive Letters

    I recently was required to reinstall Windows 10 after I installed a new SSD as my C: drive. Now, I've got everything up and running I noted the drive letters that were assigned to my second and third hard drives were different than what I use to have and
    not the drive letters I preferred. I followed the instructions to change the drive letter and they did not change but rather it added the new drive letter I assigned to the old drive letter. Below, is what File Explorer shows me now. I noted that the I
    and J are shown with a colon but D and E do not.

    Local Disk (CResource monitor shows drive C: with different letter after adding new internal drive. :)

    Local Disk (D) (IResource monitor shows drive C: with different letter after adding new internal drive. :)

    Local Disk (E) (JResource monitor shows drive C: with different letter after adding new internal drive. :)

    I then went back into Device Manager and chose to "change the drive letter" again but the next window allowed me to remove the extra drive letter so I removed it (JResource monitor shows drive C: with different letter after adding new internal drive. :) and found that disk no longer appeared in File Explorer at all and became inaccessible.
    The drive does continue to show up in Device Manager and Disk Management and continues to show both drive letters.

    I have spent several days researching this problem, trying many suggestions listed on Help web pages and nothing has been successful.

    Resource monitor shows drive C: with different letter after adding new internal drive.

    help. USB drive isn't assigned a drive letter.

    Any usb flash drive I plug into my computer isn't assigned a drive letter. The physical drive shows in the "safely remove hardware" but it doesnt show up in disk management. I have tried to populate the volume thru the safely remove hardware properties window and it does pop up in the list but it doesn't stay there. This isn't a format or assign a letter problem. It's more complicated then that. Maybe one of the services needed for usb drive management was disabled? Suggestions needed. btw external usb harddrives work fine.
