Win98 needs larger drive to be A:
Posted on 2004-04-24
We have a machine running windows 98 SE
this is a new computer, but the main application is an old dos database used as a point of sale and will not run correctly on anything older then Win98
the program wants to back up to the A: drive and gives no option to go elsewhere
the company that used to look after and support the application is no longer around.
I want to feel Win98 into seeing the removable drive (FlashDisk in USB port) as being A: drive
or atleast the 2nd HDD as being A:
so that we can backup the database
the database used to fit onto a floppy but has outgroown it.
This is a stand alone PC
I have tryied making a share on the USB FlashDisk which I can do
but was unable to map it to the A: drive (NET USE A: \\127.0.0.1\FLASHDISK) as it says I need to "log on first" before I can gain access to the network.
Any Ideas or applications that you guys are aware of that we can use?
