Limit assignment of drive letters
« on: 27. October 2009., 12:27:51 »
Hi,

I've been using sandboxie for a period of time, about a month or so (trial version) and find very interesting and excellent.
Anyway, I start using it becuase I got tired of reimaging my hard drive every week because of damn people with infected
USB memory storage devices.

Anyway the question is; is there a way to limit Windows to assign the drive letter up to F:\ and not futher?
Just to make it clear, I have C: for system, D: for data, E: for CDROM and F: for external storage (anyone's).
So, I dont want Windows to assign driver letter of G:\ or greater, so the range would be C: to F: ONLY.

Is this possible?

Thank you for your help.
well? understand ma bad English.
