He asked me how to modify his drive letter on his computer. He wanted to change the D:/to C:/. As a unprofessional person, I do not have any idea ob this problem.

    I am not the original poster but I can tell you why I wanted to change the drive letter of an external hard drive.
    I use it for backup via Microsoft's Sync2Toy and did not want to have to redo all of the right folder drive paths.

    A very OLD thread, now three years old.
