Converting an SD Card to Permanent Storage in Windows Devices

This guide no longer works with Dropbox

Are you using a SD Card as extra storage on your laptop but OneDrive or Dropbox won’t let you relocate your data there?

Here’s a solution for you.

  • Click on Start and in the Type here to search box, type in Disk Management

  • Right click on the flash/thumb drive, select Change Drive Letter and Paths…

  • Select add, then select Mount in the following empty NTFS folder, browse to your C:, select New Folder…

  • Name the folder SD Mount > OK > OK > OK

    Then Close Computer Management

You can now access your flash/thumb drive through its removable storage location (drive letter) or through the mounted location (C: DB Mount).

Dropbox and OneDrive require a local drive (the mounted volume).
