Easy way to identify disk by Volume?

Question

So, for whatever reason, I get corruption on a drive.  But as I have 46 drives, none with letters, and Windows can't repair unless there's a letter attached to it, I have to manually go through, add letters then check properties, scan and if it's the one, it'll list repairs.

Or I can go into Event viewer and find this below.  However, I can't easily identify the disk by this.  Anyone know a trick or program?

Not the full answer but mount your drives to a folder (dont need to have letters) and the "path" to the disk is shown by DP)

Then IIRC you can then scan them in Windows - which version of windows are you using?

 

The volume guid is i think (part guess) of the pool rather than a particular disk as its talking about a volume

So, for future reference, I did take the following steps.

1. As Spider99 suggested, I mounted each disk to a folder on my C drive.  Now, in Event Viewer any NTFS drive errors show which volume (i.e. disk) so I can add a letter to it and then scan.

2. I'm still unable to simply scan within windows without actually adding a letter to it.  I've not tried using CMD/Diskpart then chkdsk volume because that's actually more tedious then just adding a letter and going to properties/scan.
