Windows 10: Why would a HDD have no letter associated with it after 10 upgrade?

    Why would a HDD have no letter associated with it after 10 upgrade?


    Just sort of curious, I noticed that in disk management that I had 4 drives listed

    GAMES (H:)
    STORAGE (F:)

    But then there was another drive simply listed as "GAMES".
    I always thought it was just some screw up and a duplicate of the H drive (since they both are named as "GAMES") which has games on it but the odd part was that it didn't have a drive letter associated with it after the upgrade to 10.

    So I assigned a drive letter to it (A:) and looked into it in File Explorer and it's definitely a physical drive as the info is all there and not a duplicate of the H drive.

    It was a listed drive in Windows 7 so wondering why the drive letter was removed during the Windows 10 upgrade.

    Any clues? I know it's an odd situation, but maybe somebody else has also experienced this.

    Could you post images off your Disk Management and This PC, windows? Thanks

    Yes, screen shot of disk management please. There are some hidden system partitions that don't get assigned a drive letter. This by design. Sounds like one of those might have accidentally gotten renamed to games.

The four word game can become repetitious so how about changing a letter in a word consisting of five letters? Example: Clear Cleat Teach Anyone can start with any word if they want.
