View Full Version : Drive allocation problem

2007-10-11, 19:58
Since installing the latest software for Slimserver, using XP, a WD 350 HD...my hard drive automatically changed it's drive assignment to G: when it was always F:
I had to change the folders to look in to refresh and my shortcut drives.
Whenever I plug in something else (DAP, digi camera, printer) they automatically get assigned to F: until I use the "Safely remove hardware utility".

I have unplugged and rebooted PC and then plugged it in, fresh, but it keeps defaulting to G:???

Anyone experience this problem or know how to fix it. It's not detrimental to my health, but I don't know why it happened and why I can't fix it.

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

Right click on the partition and select Change Drive Letter and Paths..

Be careful with this. Since this isn't C: you're not likely to have much trouble, but you should close any files on that drive first I'd say.
