Windows 10: SSD Not being assigned drive letter
SSD Not being assigned drive letter
After formatting my extra SSD, windows won't assign it a drive letter when the computer starts. I have to use a third-party software to assign the letter, and I have to do it everytime it boots, and it's starting to annoy me.
Can't really find any solutions on google
Is it internal or external drive ?
Did you try assigning letter thru disk management ?
The drive is internal, and the only thing I can do with disk management, is delete the partitions on it.
Does it have any volumes created and are they/is it formated?
Otherwise it's only unallocated space and the OS can't give it a drive letter.
I don't know if you misread something in my post, but I can assign a drive letter through a third party software, and when I do that it works fine till I reboot.
Yep, I skimmed too fast
Is there anything on it you can't temporarily move to another disk?
I was thinking maybe nuking the disk using the clean command in diskpart:
How to Diskpart Erase/Clean a Drive Through the Command Prompt
Then doing a full format instead of a quick one(takes much longer, but is more thorough).
Then lastly run chkdsk /r
Aren't there any other options? The only spare drive space I've got, is on a very old and slow HDD, moving all my things there would take centuries
try just the chkdsk /r first. It will check for errors and bad blocks and repair what it finds.
I doubt there's anything wrong with disk, must be something with windows. Do you have "Do not Show empty drives" checked or not in Folder options ?
I'm running chkdsk now.
CountMike, what does that have to do with the drive not automatically being assigned a drive letter by windows?
I have just upgraded to Windows 10 Home using the Tutorials and a flash drive boot. All seems to have gone well and Windows installed in my 120Gig SSD Drive C.

This is really more of a convenience issue than anything else. I have a situation where I need drives F and G available for scheduled file backups, and I like to play a game which involves mounting an ISO as a virtual drive, which would normally...
I have an external drive where the electronics of the case has failed. I have switched the drive into my pc so that I can use it as an internal drive. The drive is still operational but I cannot see it listed in my drives. Opening up disk...
I have just set up a mirror drive(software RAID1) and want to change the drive letter. I am getting a message "The parameter is incorrect". I am wondering if I am stuck with the one assigned when the mirror drive was set up.
Hi. I just installed a small ssd drive to be used by a program as a temp drive. Now that i've set the app to use G: as temp drive, i do not need to interact with the drive again. Set it and forget it.
So how do i hide the drive from explorer...
