    How to change the Drive letter for the DVD in Windows Serv


    How to change the Drive letter for the DVD in Windows Server 2012?

    I couldn’t figure out how the drive letter of the DVD in in Windows Server 2012 can be changed. In my case (attached), it takes the letter “D” and I want to change it to be “E”.

    In windows 8.1, this can be easily done as shown in the screenshot (attached)

    Thank you

    Best

    Don't you get an option to choose Disk management by right clicking ? Or +X?



    Or just paste this in search or run diskmgmt.msc

    Your screenshot shows you in Server Manager instead of Disk Manager.
