    I have installed both Win XP and Vista in my machine, where XP in C drive and Vista in H drive. Now I want to keep Vista only and format the Win XP. So is it possible to change the drive label for Vista from H to C? Will this action cause any problem, such as unable to boot into Windows, programs installed in Vista cannot function properly?

    Thanks for your quick response.

    I tried the method mentioned in the post. However, an error message was given stated that I cannot change the drive letter since it is the system partition and the boot partition as well. So I wanna know is it possible to do it by DD10.

    Hi, tintin814

    Sorry my bad, I did not read your post correctly. :oops:

    There is a option to do it in DDS [only if used in Windows, it is not on the rescue BootCD], but you would be well advised not to use it on your OS Partition, because the OS file Association with H will be broken.

    Unless the letter change part [tool] of DDS re-make the Association. [do you feel lucky :D ]

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:
