    A drive takes up a letter, doesn't appear in disk management


    Hello
    After reinstalling win10 i noticed that i have a drive that takes up a letter and it doesn't appear in disk management, so i can't change it's letter to something like Z: and hide it. It's nothing major but I'd just like F: to be the letter that pendrives get when i connect them.
    Does anyone know how to change the letter of that drive with it not showing in disk management?
    Thanks

    Is it a network drive which has been mapped to a drive letter? If so,you can just right click the drive and remove it.

    Will the drive appear when in some third-party software like AOMEI Partition Assistant or EaseUs or else?

    An actual drive should appear in partition management software but I don't think a mapped network drive will.
