Adding a new Hard Drive (Drive Letter Problem)
Posted on 1999-01-19
I've currently got a 4GB volume which is segmented into 3 logical volumes (2x1GB and 1GB). The first of these volumes (2GB) is the C drive and contains all of my Windows NT stuff, the second (1GB) is the D drive and contains all my Windows 98 stuff. The third and final volume (1GB) is the E drive and this holds general stuff. Volume C is FAT 16, whilst D and E are both FAT32.
I just tried to add a new hard disk as the secondary master and found that it was assigned drive letter D. Unfortunately I dual-boot into '98 or NT and because the 98 config expects to find it's files on D I get severe problems. I'm limited as to which way I can boot as I need to be able to see the FAT32 volumes so that I can copy some data off the new disk.
Does anyone know of a way to modify the set so the new drive isn't allocated letter D, but instead is given F?
