Hi,

I have posted on here about this once before but it somehow was closed without anyone ever responding. I'm not sure how that happens. LOL

Anyway,

I have read how to change the drive letter here However, the part where you assign a new drive letter under disk management is all grayed out. I'm not sure what to do. Could someone get back to me and let me know?

Thanks,

Are you talking about this solution: http://kb.adobe.com/...rnalId=kb406903 ?
What is the drive, you're trying to change the letter?

Yes,

That is the problem but the solution they give...which is also in the post that I gave a link to...seems to get me in the right direction however when I am in disk management I right click on drive "F" which is my hard drive, then click on "change drive letter and paths" I click on the "add" button and "assign the following drive letter" circle and lettering is grayed out. It won't let me click on it.

Or, if I click on the "change" button under "change drive letter and paths" it brings up a window and says "windows cannot modify the drive letter of your system volume or boot volume".

I'm in the correct place aren't I? But it won't let me add or change. Thats what I'm having trouble with.

Thanks and let me know,

Don't even attempt.
You didn't read the link carefully enough.

The temporary "C" drive can be a removable drive, such as a USB Flash drive or other storage device, or you can rename an existing drive to use "C" as its label.

You can't rename your main hard drive.

I'll try to read a bit more carefully next time. :)
