Drive Letter not showing up in disk management
My External Drive is normally assigned the letter G, however when I plugged in it now it was assigned H. Looking in Disk management, G does not show up in the list of letters available to change the assigned letter to, and it does not appear in disk management as being assigned to any drive I currently have.
I saw another thread on this and it said to go here in the registery:
And rename the letter after the "DosDrives part"
I tried that but it still did not free up Letter G, and I also tried deleting the entry that appears for G:
But that also did not free it up and when I opened the registry again that G: entry was back. There are also others keys in the folder like:
That maybe assigned with these letters somehow so I'm wondering if anyone knows what else I should delete or change to be able to assign the letter G again.

The Drive is connected via esata to the same port. However it seems I that letter G has been freed up now. It seems deleting the \DosDrives\G: registry key and then renaming the H: key that my drive was currently assigned to G, and then rebooting worked, and my drive then became drive G as normal
