%SystemRoot% variable changed
Posted on 2006-03-29
I've been having some wierd problems on a Windows Server 2003 machine. After looking into the problems I think know whats going on, I just don't know how to correct it. The machine has 2 drives in a mirror(C:), this is where the OS is installed and the data is stored. There is a 3rd drive(e:) that is used for temp fiels, backups, etc. I notived a whiel back that the contents of the c: drive got copied over to the e: drive, waht is didn;t realize until laster was that the %systemroot% variable got moved from the c: to the e: drive as well. All the applications still run off of the c: drive, the "Program files" folder was deleted off of e: tofrre up some space, so there is no question as to where these are running from. The Docuements and Setting got moved from c: to e: as well, this is what caused the problesm to be notices, since a few things changed at the time. The are many things that still point to locations on c:\Windows as well. I want to get the sytsem to use the mirrored drive for everything, sicne its in a mirror, and it the drive thats getting backed up. How can I do this?
