    We have Raptor SATA disk which needs a special driver not included on Windows XP installation disk. Therefore, the store set up our system with boot on the C: drive (slower drive) but when prompted where to install Windows XP, D: (RAPTOR) was selected.
    This system is hard to work with and we don't know how to back it up because both disks are in use. Before we had the RAPTOR as our boot disk, we used Acronis True image, but when restoring it wiped the disk and could not finish restoring and notified us the back up was corrupt.
    We would like to get back to our previous installation, but we wouldn't like to lose all of our files. Can we change d: to c: with help of disk director?
    How can we make d: bootable and get it to be our c: drive?

    Hello smithcook,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Director Suite (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/diskdirector/).

    Please note that you should not change the letter of your system partition. Otherwise Windows will not start. If you haven't installed Windows yet and want to install it to C: partition you may unplug other disks and then install the system. In this case the disk will be shown to you as C: drive.

    Thank you.
