Win2K Drive Letters Dilemma

  daba 20:24 09 Feb 2007

Re-building PC after a HDD fail, but didn't connect HDD 2 at first : Windows has been reloaded with :-

C: HDD 1

D: CD/RW Drive

E: DVD Drive

F: Removeable Disk Drive (Printer Slot)

G: HDD 2

How can I reset this to :-

C: HDD 1

D: HDD 2



G: Removeable Disk

I have tried unistalling all the drives (except C:), and re-booting with the CD/RW and DVD drives disconnected and the printer turned off - but the second HDD remains at drive G:

How do I get these back in the right order, please?

To change drive letters (except boot/system vol) try Disk management:-
Start/Right click My computer, then 'Manage'.
In the new window click on 'Disk management' in left pane.
In the right lower pane right click on the relevant drive/s and then 'Change drive letter and paths'.
Make sure your external drives etc are connected.
