    Howdy!

    I've got a strange one - it's no biggie but I'd like to change it back. My 3rd hard drive is used only for data/file storage and was formerly known as "Data Drive:G." Upon my first use of TrueImage, I created a 10 gig "securezone" on the 120 gig data drive where I proceeded to image my "operating system only" hard drive. Today I felt I should add some space to the securezone even though it was not needed yet. I changed securezone to 25 gig, but in the process (apparently, anyway) securezone became drive "G" and my datadrive became drive "H." Like I said, it's no biggie - especially since it's files/data only so there are only a few shortcuts leading to that drive... But I would like to change it back... Any ideas?

    Hi, Detox

    Do not know if you have tried this yet.

    Right Click>My Computer>

    Left Click>Manage>

    Left Click>Disk Management>

    Right Click>(Data Drive (H))>

    Left Click>Change Drive Letter aand Paths....>

    Left Click>Change>

    Left Click>H and change to G set OK [Best to ReBoot then]

    If G is available to you.

    This Should work as G is not seen by the System.

    Hope this Help,
    Take Care,

    AH-HA! pure genious, my dear sir!

    Hehe - nope, I hadn't tried that. I didn't know to try that ;-)

    I have learned something valuable today and I thank you for that one. Reckon I just never had the need to change a drive letter before!

    I still wonder a bit how changing the size of securezone also changed drive letters, but with such an easy fix it matters little.

    Hi, Detox

    Glad it be of some help.

    It the first thing I do on a clean insall, is to change my optical drives too Y:\ and Z:\.

    So any Partitions or HDD's are in the correct order when added.

    For safety have Ti Check the Image. [to make sure it is still not (G)]

    Take Care,

    Hmm well now I can feel smart - I did have TI check the securezone after fixing the drive designations and everything appears to be in perfect order :ninja: !
