Mapping a USB Drive to a Folder

When you plug in a USB pen drive Windows automatically assigns the next available drive letter. This can become a little confusing when you are dealing with multiple devices. The following are instructions on how to map a USB device to a folder:

  1. Create a subfolder under “My Documents” called USB;
  2. Under the USB folder create a folder for each USB device you will be mapping;
  3. Attached the USB device to your workstation;
  4. Run diskmgmt.msc (Press Windows+R and type diskmgmt.msc);
  5. Right click on the USB device;
  6. Select “Change Drive Letter and Paths”;
  7. Click “Add”;
  8. Browse to the folder you created in step 2;
