    Normal Drive letter vs Mounting a volume as an empty folder

    Hello,

    I was wondering what the prime uses for a logical drive (just assigning it as the letter F: for example ) might be vs. Mounting the logical drive as an empty folder that supports drive paths?

    And why someone would want to use one option vs. the latter? (common uses).

    thanks for any ideas.:eek:

    (I only have one hard drive, so this would be an extended partition on the same disk)
