Drive Letter Availability

I'm trying to remember but I am having difficulty in finding how to make
certain drive letters unavailable. I'm using Windows XP Pro and I seem to
remember a screen that listed all drive letters from A to Z and you could
remove a checkmark to prevent those letters from being assigned.

Anyone know where this was/is?

TIA
Scott

It didn't make them unavailable, it hid them from display in Explorer - ONLY. It was tweakui.

This sounds like a page from the TweakUI settings. My Computer> Drives has
a list of drives such as you describe. TweakUI is one of the Power toys for
XP. A link to the download can be found here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

NOTE: Read the system requirements carefully to get the right TweakUI
version for your version of XP.
