Change of drive Letters

  Madpad_001 11:26 24 Jul 2004

I am using win XP Home and I have being told that you can change drive letters about. Meaning I have split my Hard Drive into two drives the letters being C: & E: with my CD-ROM drive being D: what I wound like to do is change my CD-ROM to E: and my second Hard drive to D:. is this possible?

I hope you understand this.

Right Click on My Computer and choose Manage.

Then click on Disk Management.

You will see a list of your drives in the bottom pane. By right clicking on the right hand section of the particular drive you can choose to change the drive letter.

If you have loaded software that then requires the CD to be present you will have to reload if you change the CD drive letter from D to E - as the installed softwrae will still look for the disk on D

Yes you can. Start, right click My Computer, Manage, Disk Management. Right click on a drive and select Change Drive letter and paths. You will have to change one to something like R first to free up the letter.

Also, if there is a shortcut on the desktop to the CD-ROM, you will have to change the path.
