    Allocating Drive Letters for the Epson Workforce 845

    When I was setting up this printer, it grabbed a drive letter -- I am assuming for a memory card -- which is showing as empty in My Computer.

    Because I needed that letter for other applications, I deleted the printer, assigned the drive letters as needed, and then re-installed the printer. As expected, it took the first available letter, which was OK since I knew ahead of time.

    But, is/was there a way to "un-assign" the letter the printer initially grabbed and then re-assign it? I saw nothing when I looked, and haven't heard back from Epson as yet.

    It would be great if it could be controlled like mapping a drive...

    Regards,

    You should be able to do that with the disk management tool.

    From a command prompt enter "diskmgmt.msc" and on the drive map at the bottom right click on the drive you want to change and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths"

    Should be pretty self explanatory from there as it allows you to remove drive letters as well as assigning them.

    Browni, strangely, that drive isn't showing up there. It shows up as Drive "O" in "My Computer" but is absent in Disk Management. Very weird.
