Need advice on deleting Drive letters..where to put folders?

Recommended Posts

I resemble that remark. :P

 

But you're right, most people won't need to do this. 

However, there are two type of people that will:

  1. Those that don't want their "This PC" or whatever to be cluttered up with a bunch of drive letters, and
  2. People with OCD. 

I'm the second kind. 

Also, ~20TBs of data isn't that bad (duplicated, using about 40TBs of space). :)

I have an ugly feeling that I am in the OCD category..   :D

 

Course a lot of that has to do with the fact that if it possible to go sideways, it will probably do so while I am using it.

 

Thanks for the help on this.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I totally am. :)

 

And yeah, being able to easily identify the drives make any sort of issues easier to deal with.

I have to give them a name when I format them and physically write it on the disk with a permanent marker pen as well.  That's what happens when you are old. My wife says it's something I drank or smoked when I was younger.

I give the volumes names too, particularly the ones in my OffSite drive sets. I also put P-Touch labels on them. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to tell which is which. Mind you, now that I'm using DrivePool for the OffSite drives, it no longer matters which order the drives have in the external enclosure.

Instead of starting a new thread, I will just ask my followup question here.

So I mapped some drives to folders and then deleted thedrive letters.

The drives appear to function fine.

What is bothering me however are these yellow triangles in Device Manager.

I can not imagine that this is normal...but no amount of Googling seems to mention anything like this.

I am not sure how concerned I should be by this.

Can somebody tell me what I am looking at?

You're using USB drives, right?

 

If so, that's the portable device stuff ... and it's not loading right.

This should in no way affect the disks.
