Hi:

The only thing I can suggest is to Map the drives in windows that you need when you need to access them, and then unmap the drives. If you have 19 drives Only mount those that you need to access, then remove the drive mapping when you are done. The hard disks take some of those letters, so you would have to account for those as well.

This way, your drives are available when you need them, and all your drive letters can be assigned as needed - of course, you would probably network 2 machines to do what I am suggesting - I am not sure if there is any other way to do this, but I am sure that someone may have an idea :)

Good Luck!!

Brian

I thought that was about the only solution to the problem but I wanted to check anyway. An obvious choice of buying larger ext hdds and move the contents of smaller ext hdds would suit my wallet right now.

Thanks for responding Brian. :)
