How Do I Mount a Drive in Windows?
You can mount a drive in Windows so that you can map a certain drive’s available space to another drive. In simplest terms, this means that you can utilize a specific drive’s space so that it can be used by another drive. Imagine that you have no more available free space on your drive C, but you still have a large amount of unused space on your drive D. Now, let’s say you have a game on your drive C that needs an update, and the update requires a large amount of space that cannot fit into your drive. You can mount your drive C to drive D so that you will be able to add more files to your drive C without requiring additional space on the drive. This tutorial explains how to mount a drive in Windows.
