Windows 7: Library Setup

22 May 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
Library Setup

I currently have one SSD with my C: OS and D: Docs on it. I am getting a second SSD and will move D: Docs to it and have only the OS on one SSD and the Docs on the other SSD. I currently have my libraries setup so that they go to D: for my Docs. When I move my D: Docs to the new SSD will the libraries work with no problem or will I have to set them again even though it was D: on the old SSD and D: on the new SSD? Thanks,

I don't use libraries and can't be sure, but.......

There was a similar problem the other day here when someone was putting in a new D drive. C was on a separate disk. They had some games installed on D and wondered if the games would still work when they were transferred to the new D.

Turns out they did. The registry entries for the old D applied equally well to the new D, so there were no conflicts.

Hey Jim,

As long as the drive letter is D on the new SSD it should be fine.

Thank you very much Brink and Iggy. I was hoping it would.
