Customer Question

I had to rebuild my windows program. I don't know why, but it assigned the drive letter F to a drive named System. I use F to identify a NAS drive and all computers are set up to recognize this F. Can anyone tell me how to change this drive to Z so that I can free up the letter F?

Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Can you tell me which version of Windows you are using?

Expert:  Byron replied 6 months ago.

You don't mention which version of Windows you are using but these instructions should work:

On your keyboard, hold down the Windows logo key (just to the left of the spacebar) and press R.

The Run box will open.

In the text area type: diskmgmt.msc and click OK.

In the Disk Management window, right-click on the F: drive and select "Change driver letter and paths"

click the Change button and use the drop-down arrow to select Z and click OK.

Click Yes to the warning and now the F: will become available to assign to your NAS drive.
