Mapped drives are available only when the host computer is available. Network drives are assigned letters from Z to A, and local drives (your hard drive and removable storage devices) are assigned letters from A to Z. You can assign a computer or shared folder to a different drive letter by disconnecting from the drive and then reassigning it to a new drive letter.
