Remapping Drive letters

By Togbui ·
My partitioned drive letters have changed following the reinstallatio of Windows 2000 (to resolve a registry problem). I now have \Winnt instead of G:\Winnt. G is now my CD-ROM drive, which has become disfunctional. I cannot now assess my program files which were on the G drive. How do I map the new \Winnt to the old G:\Winnt. My system is partitioned into Win 98 and Win 2000.

Remapping Drive letters

Drive letter assignments can be moved around by using computer management (right-click on "my computer", choose "manage").

In the tree pane, look for the Storage/Disk management. Fair warning, though -- if you change the drive letter of where Windows is installed (I'm not even sure the program will let you), windows will be broken.

Just go the windows explorer in 98 and select tools tab and select map network drive. Specify the drive letter and write the path: \Winnt. G: should now be the CD-ROM drive.
