Hello,
actually the variable drive letter feature only works with usb sticks. It would be very usefull to have this working also in other types of storage devices, like maped network drives.
Thank you.
Fernando

That wasnt exactly what I ment... I know you can use that path format, but I mean to access ANY drive by its label, just like you can with usb sticks.

Same as ferblaha. That post was over 4 years ago.

Variable Drive Letters works on one computer (Win10 1803), but not my other one (Win10 1803 also).
Is this a Windows or FFS issue, FFS design?

Using TrueCrypt to mount an encrypted file.

If they're both using the same version of FFS, then it not an issue with FFS

Same FFS, but it's the Portable i'm using.
Worked using 10.12, but not when i jumped to 10.18. i agree, seems like it shouldn't be FFS.
Any suggestions what i might try? i tried recreating the FFS config, and unmounting remounting filesystem, and more.
