Changing File to Drive Associations

Hello all,
 I recently swapped a hard drive out of one of my desktop systems and replaced it with a newer drive with more capacity. The old drive was being used by my wife and she had some word docs stored on it. Before swapping drives I copied those docs to the desktop, swapped the drive, partitioned it, and then copied them over to the new drive which I assigned the same name and drive letter so that it would be transparent to her. Now when she opens the Word documents,edits them, and then tries to save them she gets an error stating that the desired save location cannot be found. This makes sense but I do not know how to associate the files with the new drive so that this doesn't happen. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Have her do a "Save As" to put them in the new drive.

If you still have the old druive, it would be ideal to clne the drive, so it is *REALLY* transparent....
