How to change SYSTEM_DRV drive letter?

I manage about 20 Lenovo PCs, and just one of them (a ThinkCentre M70e with Win 7 Pro) suddenly has SYSTEM_DRV mapped to drive letter S. This is conflict with our domain policy. Can I map it to a different letter or just disconnect it from S?

I should have added that it is my understanding that SYSTEM_DRV is part of ThinkVantage.

Hello Laurischarf,

 

I read about what your doing and I just had some helpful information that could help you maybe better understand what is going on.

 

SYSTEM_DRV is the Lenovo factory recovery partition ether created by factory default or when you use the TVT Rescue and Recovery. It helps you restore that computer back to factory setting should you have an issue or it crashes.

 

I hope this helps.
