My boss has discovered that his hard drive no longer has a name.  Instead it's a bunch of ------.  Consequently, he no longer can access templates, AutoCorrect, AutoReplace and AutoText.  (I assume this is because his hard drive doesnt' have a name?)  How can I fix this?

Weed,
Thanks, that worked.  However, just for my education, was I correct that he couldn't access the Templates, AutoCorrect, & AutoText functions because the drive wasn't named?

technicaly the only reason he couldnt access them was because the application that was looking for that file was looking for HardDrive:folder:folder:Templates Folder:<template>...and since the HD was under a different name it couldnt locate the subfolders. So basically yes.
