    Diskpart assign letter "survive" after reboot


    Hello,

    I don't understand.

    I am in a Win PE, or in another kind of recovery tool with command line.

    I do:

    diskpart
    sel vol 1
    assign letter=z

    now "Z" is assigned to a disk.

    I REBOOT the computer and operate with another recovery tool (i.e. Macrium).

    I go to the promt and that disk is still mounted with a letter (generally C.

    But If I load a regular OS (Win 10) every letter is OK.

    How the assigned letter of DISKPART "survive" if the assign is done OUTSIDE the OS?

    You can't. Each OS assigns drive letters when it loads. And recovery/rescue drives that load from USB or DVD typically don't even save drive letter assignments to the USB or DVD so if you have a different physical arrangement of the drives when you boot into them the drive letters might even change then even though you are using the same rescue/recovery OS.

    Weird. I was not ask if that is possible.
    I was ask WHY in my system they SURVIVE!!!
    Not in the win10 os, they survive in the various tool that i use (win pe, macrium, etc).
    Its so strange!!!
