    Hi, I recently upgraded my second hard drive and used HDClone to transfer all the files and it worked but my hard drive is registered as the d: when my old hard drive was the E:. So my question is, is there any way to change my my D: to register as the E:

    Thanks.

    Try right clicking "My Computer" click "manage" In the list on the left choose "disk management" Right click "D" and choose "Change drive letters and paths" and rename to "E" Make sure nothing relates to it being "D" though.Note it will only let you name it to "E" if no other drive is named as that.
