<Notes> <Examples>                                                   <Index>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                                 LASTDRIVE
 
Specifies the maximum number of drives you can access. You can use this
command only in your CONFIG.SYS file.
 
The value you specify represents the last valid drive MS-DOS is to
recognize.
 
Syntax
 
    LASTDRIVE=x
 
Parameter
 
x
    Specifies a drive letter in the range A through Z.

<Syntax> <Examples>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                              LASTDRIVE--Notes
 
Default setting
 
If you do not use the LASTDRIVE command, the default value is the letter
following the last one in use. For example, if you are using drives A and C,
the default value is D.
 
Effect on memory
 
MS-DOS allocates a data structure in memory for each drive specified by
LASTDRIVE, so you should not specify more drives than are necessary.
 
                                      ***

<Syntax> <Notes>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                             LASTDRIVE--Example
 
To set the last drive to M, giving your computer access to 13 drives, you
would include the following command in your CONFIG.SYS file:
 
    lastdrive=m
 
                                      ***
