View Full Version : Is there a way to force the drive letters around in Win98SE?

I switched motherboards in my wife's machine today, got everything running again just fine except that the drive letters for my hard drive partitions have been switched around. Previously the D: drive was the CD-ROM and the two other partitions were E and F...now they are D and E and the CD is F. And I had all of her games on the second partition...some of the games I can make new shortcuts for but some are causing some real headaches - they don't want to uninstall/reinstall because of the broken link.

Seemed like I had some trouble finding a TweakUI that would work with 98SE a while back, don't know if Tweak UI might force a change like that or not. The drive letter assignments in Device Manager are C,D,E for the three partitions and I can't see any way of changing it. Oddly, I also installed some new nVidia drivers in that computer and the drives switched back to where they had been, until I rebooted again and now everything is messed up again.

Grrr I really want to install Windows 2000 on that computer but she has some older software that won't work with 2000.

As far as Tweak UI goes, it should be found on your Win98 CD if I remember correctly. You can also download it from the Microsoft webpage I believe. Not sure what else to say about rearranging drive letters without reinstalling of course :)
