Changing Drive Letters

733 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  terryxp
The company who setup a computer assigned the primary hard drive with the letter F:. This is pretty annoying so I went to disk management and went to change the driver letter and tells me it cannot because it is a system or boot volume. Is there any way to get around this or am I stuck??? Thank you!!

Sounds like you have an internal ZIP drive? . . this is a little quirk with XP, if it encounters an internal ZIP (or other removable drive) it will assign C to the ZIP and move down the chain to install the operating system. Annoying as hell.

You can change all drive assignments in XP EXCEPT, the one with the operating system on it.

The only remedy I have found is to reinstall XP, with all other internal drives disconnected.

Good Luck . . wrs
