I recently downloaded the volume ID utility which provides an ability to change partition volume ID. The instructions are to use a command prompt as it is a command line programme with the following line
Usage: volumeid driveletter:> xxxx-xxxx
I have been typing this exactly against the partition I wish to change eg
E:\>volumeid E:> 1234-4321
In every case, as soon as I hit enter I receive the message "Access is denied"
Grateful for any help on where I am going wrong in my use of MSDOS.
Agree with Whisperer. You will require exclusive access to a hard drive to prefom this operation. If you are running this program with windows loaded, this will not be the case. You need to boot to dos, not shut down to dos before this will work. Best thing is to make yourself a floppy boot disk.
