Hi y'all. I'd like to get some help.
I'm new to Windows 7, and never used Vista, just XP. I just built a new system with an 80GB SSD, and used an old hard drive for data. I relocated my "User" files to the HDD, and installed only the most essential stuff to the SSD -- Drivers
, Chrome and Starcraft 2. :-) So I had Open Office and a few other things on the HDD.
Then the HDD quit working. So I replaced it.
But now when I try to re-install OpenOffice, it complains because drive F isn't there, which was the partition I had it installed on in the old drive. I expect I'll have problems with other software too.
If I try to uninstall it, I get the same thing: there's no drive F.
Any fixes for that? Any other tips for recovering from a hard drive failure when using a small-SSD / large-HDD setup?
Of course I can always resort to erasing the SSD and re-installing Windows 7. That's not the end of the world since this is just a week-old setup.
(BTW, I also had problems that my User space had no "My Documents" folder, etc, since I had relocated it to the dead hard drive. I created a new temp admin account, deleted my account, created a new account of the same name, and deleted the temp. That mostly worked, except there's now some weird folder I can't access.)
Thanks for any help you can offer!
