    Hello there.

    I used True Image to clone my 20GB SCSI HD to a new 200GB IDE Drive.

    I am off and running with the new, 200GB as drive C: and everything is fine.

    ....Except that I can't see the old drive. It gets recognised by Device Manager and True Image menus, but it doesn't get assigned a drive letter.

    I have a feeling that since TI can see it, I could use "Add new disk" to wipe the drive and it's data and then access it. But in case something goes wrong with my new IDE drive, I don't want to let go of the data just yet. Instead, I just want to assign the free space on the SCSI drive for use as a swap file.

    Any ideas as to how I can get a drive letter assigned for the old SCSI drive?
