Changing Drive Letters in Windows 2000

If you find the need to change a drive letter, Windows 2000 makes this possible. 

Here's how: 

1. In the Control Panel, select Administrative Tools. The Administrative Tools folder will pop up. 

2. In that folder, select Computer Management. 

3. Click on Disk Management and wait for the Logical Disk Manager Service to finish scanning your system's drives. You will then see a list of the drives available in your system. 

4. Click on the drive with the drive letter you want to change. 

5. Right click and select the Change Drive Letter and Path... option. 

6. All drive letters linked to that drive will be listed on this popup screen. 

7. Click on the drive letter you want to change and click on Edit. 

8. Click on the drive letter and a whole list of available drive letter choices will now appear. 

9. Select the drive letter you want for this drive. 

10. Click OK and your drive will have a new drive letter. 

Notes: You will not be able to change the drive letter of your system or boot volume. 

However, the drive letters of all other drives and drive volumes are changeable. 

If you want to change the drive letter of a CD/DVD-ROM or ZIP drive, make sure you insert a disk first. The drive letter cannot be changed unless there's a disk in the drive. Some software may not work properly if you change any drive letter. 

So, you may need to do some registry editing to get those software to work with the new drive letter. If that doesn't work, you will have to reinstall the software using the new drive letter or reset the drive letter back to its original drive letter.
