    I am unable to create partition/assign drive letter for disk drive. Up on
    checking the registry
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{71A27CDD-812A-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F}"
    the subkeys number reached maximum limit i.e 9999.
    ( http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechn...7.mspx?mfr=true )

    at the same time, if I delete a subkey from then list, I am able to
    create/mount the volume.
    looks like, Windows keeps the subkeys of volumes which is no longer valid (
    disks were initially presented to the host and later removed)

    is this a microsoft limitation? is there any workaround to remove all the
    invalid references so that operation succeeds
