You can't. Use folders instead of drives.

Well you can use more than 26 drives if you *mount* add'l drives within
folders:

it's been asked before here (and elsewhere) :

Agreed, but I wonder about the point of the exercise. Now the OP creates
numerous partitions, then he links them to various folders on one of his
drives. I thought it would be much simpler to have few partitions and have
the respective folders on each partition. The end result is exactly the same
but three partitions are much easier to manage than 23 . . .

Actually, it's not dificult to get there these days, boards with sata and
ide can go up to 6 HDs (maybe more) plus 2 Cd/dvd, then there are printers
with slosts for cards witch 2 slots creates 2 drives... a card reader can
add up to 6 drives, external disks and network drives, foto cameras, etc...
even some 3G modems adds a driver... it's not dificult at all to reach
drive Z.
