Hi to all.
I have Windows XP Prof (legal!) My computer has always been as follows:
40 gb hard drive with O/S and everything else on C:/drive.
A second 60gb hard drive with all movies and crap on D:/drive
I also have a CD rom and a CD writer, I don’t care what letters they are called!
However I formatted my 60gb D:/drive with Partition Magic 8 and it worked fine, but now my 40gb C:/drive is now called “Local Disk F:/drive and my D:/drive is now called New Volume C:/
Sure there is nothing wrong with this but I would like to get my 40gb O/S back to being called C;/drive!
Any ideas please?

Click on Start>Programs>Aministrative Tools>Computer Management. In the tree on the left click on disk management. Right click on the F drive (change it to a letter higher than the cd rom and burner)and click on Change drive letter and paths. Click on change, click on the arrow next to the drive letter and you'll see which letters are available. Choose a higher letter then go back and rename your F to C. I hope I got that right.

Are you sure there are two seperate hard drives? Almost sounds like teh D: was a partion and when you used Partion Magic it affected the whole hard drive (C: & D:).
