    I have two hard drives on my PC, the old hdd is a 19G IDE and the new hdd is a SATA 120G.
    I recently reformatted the SATA hdd after backing up my files to the IDE hdd to do a clean install of XP Home.
    Before I reformatted the SATA hdd was drive "C" and the old IDE hdd was drive "D", but now after reformatting the drives are now the opposite, the SATA is "D" and the IDE is "C". My main/boot hdd is the SATA. How can I change the drive letters back to what they were before I reformatted?
