Hi All,

How do I network a partition on a drive that I have
removed (hidden) the drive letter?


First, to assign a drive letter?


The connection drops after you remove the drive letter


Then you don't remove the drive letter!! Alternatively, try to script
the process,

That won't help if the ransomware or another program knows how to
use volumeIDs to gain entry to attached media. Aka, A UNC path:

For example (from a console prompt) type

mountvol enter

You can also get the same information from the system registry.
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices\]

See those? You can access them:


https://superuser.com/questions/4657...ter-in-windows

If OTH, you were wanting to semi make sure a specific USB disk was
given the same drive letter (if it's available) you can use the
label command to assign it a unique label, then use disk management
and force a specific drive letter based on that label. This way, if
the user swaps out other usb sticks,drives, pending they don't use
the drive letter you designated, you can be sure the drive you
specificed will get the drive letter you wanted it to get. Useful if
you have scripts or programs expecting to access the drive via a
specific drive letter.

Malware can also pull volumeIDs and mount a drive letter themselves,
if they are so inclined. In the event some of it's internal routines
would prefer to deal with a drive letter vs a UNC path.

The moral of this post is, don't rely on lack of drive letters as a
way to keep malware away from the contents of the drive. If Windows
can access the drive, so can malware.
