Windows 7: Assigning drive letters

Assigning drive letters

i am not sure which forum this belongs in, so please move it to the correct forum if required.

I am in the process of preparing my pc to migrate to a SSD.
I am trying to relocate various files. I have a primary partition E, labeled 'Data', about 9GB, which I want to copy to a different HDD. The copy partition and contents worked fine, but I have a problem with drive letters

How can I use the same drive letter on the new partition?

I assigned the letter H, but I want it to be assigned the letter E so existing applications will continue to work.

Hello Ed,

You could use OPTION TWO to change the drive letters. If E is already being used, then you'll need to assign it a different letter before being able to assign E to the new partition.

Drive Icon - Change

Hope this helps,

Thank you Shawn, worked perfectly!
So obvious, just needed a new set of eyes to see it.
