Changing a drive letter on a harddrive in XpPro

I have a new 2nd SCSI hard drive(36G) in XpPro and under the Computer Management section its displayed as a Page File...Therefore when I try to change the drive letter for the new hard drive it won't let me. The message I get is its a Page file and can't do a change letter, something like that. The harddrive is working fine etc. but I want to change the drive letter how do I do this?

First move your pagefile to another drive (c: for instance) then you can rename this drive

Start => Settings => Control pannel => System => Advanced => Performance Options => You should see here how to change the pagefile.

Didnt work...the drive under Disk management still states as "healthly Page File" and won't let me change the drive letter.

LucF...I got it to work. Steps were to set the drive to "no pagefile", then reboot the machine.
2nd go to disk management and change the drive letter accordling. After the drive letter setting I set the 2nd drive let the system to handle the page file. Thanks ....

You're welcome. Just to explain to you: I only use win2k and because some things are different in winXP it takes some searching sometimes. Glad you solved your problem.
