I have a Dell Inspiron with a 32gb eMMC drive. I have a 128gb SD card, and the laptop reads it fine. I would like it to show up as a fixed drive, rather than a removable drive, for Windows Updates, software installation, and so on.
Lexar BootIt does not work.
Also, this is an SD card, not a USB flash drive.
Now let's add the SD card to the libraries
Click on "Documents"
At the top of the window, click "Manage"
Click "Manage library"
You'll now see a window called "Documents Library Locations", click on "Add"
Navigate to "C:\SD card", then click on the "Documents" folder you created and click "Include folder".
Optional: you can also set the SD card to be the default location to save stuff. Just right click (long tap) on the folder you've just added and then click "Set a default save location".
Repeat the process for the other libraries
Your libraries now include your SD card! Yay! So you can now save things like those albums on photos on your SD card rather than on your tablet to save that precious space.
Remember - if you remove the SD card, you'll break the link, but it will be saved for when you next insert the card.
Now, we're going to create a mount point
Navigate to your "C:" drive (or primary drive where Windows is installed).
Create a new folder and call it "SD card".
Now for the fun part. We're going to mount the SD card into the folder we've just created and then "fool" Windows into adding the SD into the libraries.
On the start screen, search for "Disk Management" - it is listed under "settings" as "Create and format hard disk partitions".
Find your removal disk - it will be listed as "Removable". You can check the drive letter and the storage space to ensure that you've got the correct disk.
Right click (long press) on the SD card and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."
Ensure "Mount in the following empty NTFS folder" is selected and then click "Browse"
Navigate to "C:\SD card" and select the folder. Click "OK".
Before we start: if you have any files on your SD move them now. This process will delete any files currently on your SD card.
Firstly, we need to format your SD card to NTFS.
Right click (or long tap) on your removable drive and choose "Format..."
Choose "NTFS" from the "File System" drop down menu and click "Start"
Accept the warning
Open the SD card, through "Computer", and create four new folders: "Documents", "Music", "Pictures" and "Videos".
