How assign a drive letter to hidden partition? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I try to assign a drive letter to hidden partition in C++.

    I tried SetVolumeMountPoint() API, but it needs partition's id and hidden partition has not id.

    How can I try other way?

  • Windows won't mount hidden partitions. A drive letter can be assigned to a mounted volume, so no, you cannot do this. For more information please visit the filesystem & storage forum.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN forum.

    I am afraid that the issue is out of support range of VS General Question forum which mainly discusses WPF & SL designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System and Visual Studio Editor.

    I am moving your question to the moderator forum ("Where is the forum for..?"). The owner of the forum will direct you to a right forum.

    Best regards,

    Amanda Zhu

  • How can "DiskPart" do this? Is it called any APIs?
