I want to add some additional external hard drives  on my home computer to use for different business records, but the three I want to add will only open up as 'I' drive - if this one is already running then I cannot add any more. Plug one into a USB port and I get the bleep acknowledging a new device is in, but it does not display a new drive ID ???

 

I have now realised that all three drives are now installed and called drive 'I', and I cannot re-designate new ID's which ideally should be drive 'J' and drive 'K'. Does anybody know how I can re-designate the names of these two drives ?

Please open the Disk Management console by typing Diskmgmt.msc into Start Menu search box. You can right click any one of hard disks partitions and select  "Change Drive Letter and Paths" to assign new drive letter to partition you have selected.
