Drive letter of drivepool

edited March 2013 in DrivePool
I can't change drive letter of my pool on windows server 2008r2. Everytime I add new drive to pool my drivepool change the letter , it's driving me crazy.
I'm tryinng to change it in disk manager but instead of other drives there is no option to change the letter of drivepool . Reinsalling doesn't help.
Any suggestions please.

    I really wish the option was in the DrivePool GUI too.

    What I do is open command window, type "diskpart" <enter>

    list volume
    select volume X  (whatever the volume of DrivePool is)
    assign letter=X   (new drive letter)

  • It works ! Thank you .

    Glad to hear it. 

    Yes it seems the diskmgmt.msc tool doesn't let you change drive letter of pool because the volume seems to get (falsely) detected as a Read-Only volume.  I'm sure thats just a bug with DP's virtual disk driver.

    Could use diskmgmt.msc to add a new letter, then remove the old. Usually, it takes a reboot anyways to finish that when files are in use.
