    Troubleshooting a corrupted drive, so installed it on a working PC as a slave. Got it working long enough to pull the data. Drive letter assigned was "M". Shutdown, removed drive, boot. Drive letter was STILL showing up.
    -Tried Disk Management in WXP, no luck.
    -Tried command line removal, no luck.
    -Used TweakUI to remove the drive from the list, which is great, but I still cannot assign "M" to any other device. I can live with it, but I'm curious if anyone has a solution.

    Hi There!

    The only guarentee of resolving you delemma would be to format and Reinstall Windows. That can be alot of work, but if you're having system issues and such, wiping the drive and reinstalling windows should resolve most id not all of the problems.


    Good Luck!
