o.k. this is whats happening; i had an old machine that the hard drive was giving me problems on. so i decided to take another machine i had and ghost the hard drive. the HD that was giving me trouble was a 10 gig and the new one is 4.3 gig. also the 10 gig was running fat 16 file system with 5 partitions. when i started to ghost it said there were errors on 2 of the partitions and i could sector copy or ignore. i chose sector copy then it said destination drive was to small so i ran it again but this time i chose ignore and all copied fine.

Now the problem;
the machine that i just did this to is a network server. there are 3 other computers that access this machine. the server is also used as a workstation. ok i reconfigured the software on the server to recognize the drive letter change. but the clients cant be done that easily. before the drive letter changes the drive they were mapped to was F:\ now it is D:\. is there any way to manually asign drive letters to the hard drive so i can make D become F?
