SOS! Win7 Disk Managment Acting Strange

Postby George Tyndall » Thu Nov 25, 2010 6:26 pm

It has renamed my External HDD Drive M as Drive H (formerly associated with one of the 4 drives for memory cards), but when I go to Disk Management to rename to M, that choice does not exist, despite the fact that no other drive is using it.

I did create a restore point earlier today. I'll try that and then report back.

Thank you.

BTW, note the unusual diagonal lines over the affected drive.

Well, System Restore reported that it was unable to perform the restore, however, before proceeding to another less desirable restore point, I checked and -- lo and behold! -- the correct drive letter, M, is now in place.

System Restore is such a liar!

Thanks again for the suggestion.
