Consider the following scenario:
- You install a new hard disk on a Windows Server 2012 R2-based computer.
- You open Server manager, click File and Storage Services, click volumes, and then click Disk.
- You create a new volume on the disk. When you create the volume, you use these options:
- Format the disk as a GUID partition table (GPT) style disk.
- Mount the volume to a folder instead of assigning a driver letter to it.
- You restart the computer.
To work around this issue, use the Diskpart command or Disk Management to assign the mount folder.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
