Want to Assign a drive letter to a partitioned device but the letter is not in the list


I created a partitioned drive I went to assign letter G but I don't see it in the list. no drive is using the letter G I do believe that some USB is using letter G, but I don't see my USBs ( see image)

What can I do?

Thanks

Do you have any USB storage devices like a card reader hooked up? Those would take up extra drive letters but not show up in Explorer until you put some media in.

I also notice you have disk drives C: and F: and a DVD drive on D: which makes me wonder where E: is...

OK I plugged in some USBs and if you look at the images Drive G still does not show and I can't assign in to a partitioned drive. Cause there is no letter drive G

Something is using letter G:. What would be helpful is a screenshot of your Disk Management window - also, are you using any virtual CDROM drive emulators?

Nothing is using drive G but I think its Removable USB storage. However I followed Brinks tutorial on how to delete the registry key and G showed up as available. So all good.

Thanks for your help
