Partitioning - Drive Letter Changes
Posted on 2004-11-29
I have a client that is running a Win98 P2P server, and the C: drive was running out of disk space. The client purchased a new 40 gig HDD, and I partitioned/formatted/installed it. I created an extended partition, and a logical drive letter D: -- all was good to go. During the install, I noticed that whomever set the box up initially had only partitioned 2 gigs out of the 20 gig primary drive, hence wasting 18 gigs of space. What I would like to do is, re-partition the primary drive into 2 partitions C: (system, boot) and D: (data). What I am wondering is, once I do this will the extended partition and logical drive created on the primary drive allow me to name the D: drive ? and automatically rename the partition on the secondary drive to E:? Or, will I have to assign a new drive letter to the secondary drive first, and then re-partition the primary? Your thoughts are appreciated. TIA.
