Renaming a drive Tags: Hard Drives Computer Storage Last response: October 5, 2006 6:22 PM in Storage Share AwsmGy October 5, 2006 2:50:04 AM I have two hard drives in my computer, one of them is C, and the other is F. I would like to make the F, D instead is there a procedure to doing this? More about : renaming drive slicessoul October 5, 2006 5:17:52 AM Go to Disk Management, you can change the drive letter there. PaCanc October 5, 2006 7:00:51 AM That is (in more words): Start->Settings->Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Computer Management ->Storage->Disk Management Right click the partition you want, and change the drive letter. Warning: if you installed something on that drive, you may have to reinstall it because of the drive letter change. Also, shortcuts that point to that drive will not work afterwards.
