    If someone were to create the virtual partition on their hard drive and another hidden partition already had the drive letter assigned that Returnil was attempting to use what would happen?

    Would Returnil warn that the drive letter was already in use or would it assign that letter anyway and the other drive letter be changed or what?

    Thanks.

    If there were a naming issue, Windows would be the arbiter and would assign a unique letter to each. You can also adjust this yourself in the Virtual Disk settings by forcing it to use a different letter.

    First thanks for taking the time to answer my question.

    Yes, I was aware that I could choose the letter Returnil assigns to the virtual drive. We had a hidden partition on the drive and I just wondered what would have happened if I hadn't known it was there and it already had the same label as I was about to assign to Returnil's virtual partition.
