I have:

Partition # 1 - NTFS - Drive1
Partition # 2 - FAT32 - Drive1
Partition # 3 - FAT32 - Drive2

Partition # 1 is the system partition ( C: ). I created an empty folder "Files" inside C: (Partition # 1) and am trying to mount partitions 2&3 to that folder.

Mounting the #2 works. When I try #3 it tells me:

"The path can not be used for creating a drive path. The directory is not empty"

When I looked inside the folder there was only a Recycle hidden folder. So I disabled recycling, deleted the hidden folder, and tried to mount #3. It still gives me the same error messsage.:mad:

Any idea what I can do?

HERE it says in the middle that more than one drives can be mounted to the same folder.

I am using Windows 2000 BTW.
