Small Business Server 2003 - Changing Hard Drive Letter.

Is it possible to change the drive letter on the bootable drive on a system running SBS 2003? Currently it is marked as F and I would like to give it the normal C designation.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


The drive letter can be changed easily with Disk management, but because many application paths are hard-coded upon installation this will completely ruin the server.

Rant32 is absolutely right dont think about changing the drive letter where your OS and other applications are installed

How long ago was the server installed?  If recently, then you may want to consider reinstalling it.

It has apparently been running a long time so it is not really worth changing it. Incidentally, you can't use disk management to change the drive letter of the system drive...

Could be done with 2000, but haven't tried it since. You're right.
