Reassign drive letters when adding hard drive
Posted on 2004-09-09
On a Win 98 system I had a Maxtor Fireball 3 ATA/133 40 GB HDD partitioned as C;, D: and E.
OS was on C: 5GB and other programmes to be loaded on D:10GB.
E: 25GB was for storage. This drive was on primary IDE cable and jumpered as master.
I added a 5 GB Quantum Fireball 3.5 Series and formatted it using Maxblast3 for additional storage as slave on the same IDE cable.
It works but the new 5 GB HDD has 'robbed' the D: drive designation - so the original physical drive now has partitions C:, E: and F;.
The added physical drive has a single partition and is the D: - can I make it F?
