Can i change the drive letter of my system drive ?

I'm running XP pro, SP2, my system drive is drive F: but i need to change it to C:.

Is it possible to change without reformatting ?

In w2k it's control panel/admin tools/computer management/disk management/and right-click. But you can't change a letter until the original drive letter has been changed, and rebooted.

I think may be a prob changing system drive (c).

Obviously the major problem is the programs on my machine that will all be looking for the F: path.

Sometimes changing system drive works and sometimes not but this is procedure click here. As far as I know the paths are auto changed.

Cheers for the links, both recommend against performing the proceedure unless the drive letter has been changed since installation.

Can Partition magic do it ?
