The Backend is on a computer that had a 3 partition hard drive with the database on the D partition. After a power failure the hard drive would not boot so we replaced it with a new on with a C only partition. The front end command buttons now get an a message "Disk or Network error". We tried to fix by mounting the old hard drive and making the correct partition read D: Two buttons worked but all others still have the same error message.

We can't continue to use that old drive, plus we need to fix the other buttons. How do I get the Front-end buttons to recognize the database is now on the C drive of the Back-end computer. Can they be reprogrammed or what?

Any input is appreciated.
