Remove letter from recovery partition

Your windows may assign a letter to a recovery partition, which can conflict with a network-mapped drive.

To resolve this issue you must remove the letter, and if you want, assgin a different letter.

This solution works on windows 10 pro 20H2


Open the shell-console (CMD)

type:

diskpart

list disk

select disk X (Where “X” is the number of the disk that contains the partition)

list vol

select vol X (Where “X” is the letter of the partition)

remove

exit


You can stop here and continue with your life. If you want to assing a new letter to the volume:

diskpart

list disk

select disk X (Where “X” is the number of the disk that contains the partition)

list vol

select vol X (Where “X” number of the volume)

assign letter= X (Where “X” is the new letter of the partition)

exit
