Don't muck around with the drive letters if you want your system to continue operating. What is the drive letter problem anyhow ?? Whether you move something from F to C or from C to F is the same thing.

And your games you have to reinstall. Only data files can be transferred.

Crap, alright. I'm gonna have to reinstall steam too then. I just moved the whole folder over to an external, but it was orginially installed on the c: drive. Sadly my new c drive (the SSD) is too small to hold the 200Gb of games.

Neat, it's nice of them to provide an extra procedure.

Yea, no kidding. Now I just hope there is a procedure relatively similar for Origins.
