What do I add a Mount point?

A. Mount points are created using the Disk Administration MMC as follows:

  1. Start the Computer Management MMC snap-in (Start – Programs – Administrative Tools – Computer Management)
  2. Expand the Storage branch and select Disk Management
  3. Right click on the volume you want to create as a mount point and select ‘Change Drive Letter and Path’
  4. Click ‘Add’
    Click here to view image
  5. Select a new ‘folder’ for the folder to be mounted as. If you click browse it will only show NTFS 5.0 volumes. Click OK

If you then look in explorer the new mount point will have the icon of a disk but will have the full content of the disk as shown below
