:tazz: :) :) :woot: Hello there. Thanks for reading my email.

I recently purchased a WD 160GB SATA drive and used the software that was included to XCOPY all my existing software from my old drive 60GB to my new high speed SATA drive. However, when I removed my old drive C and rebooted with the new harddrive it loads but I cannot run any programs. The programs are looking for drive C which does not exist anymore. Windows XP recognizes the new drive as DRV2_Vol1(E) drive E. How do I hack or edit my registry to recify this program? I tried using Manage to change the drive from E to C, but as you know you cannot change the active drive location or name. Please help me. I don't want to reinstall everything.

I could be wrong and you may be able to use a 3rd party software
However this is from microsoft.
You cannot change the drive letter of the system volume or boot volume
