How do you relabel a hard drive?I did a search on the forum, google and yahoo and did not come up with an answer that would also solve my problem.

I am running Windows XP, I believe the second version. Don't know much about the other specs, bought it new from Dell a few years ago when it caem standard with 512 mb of ram and an 80 hard drive.

I have two external hard drives and somehow the usb cord to one of them (250 gig Western Digital) fell out and that drive went from being the E drive to G drive. So how can I change it back to being the E drive?

I tried using the hyper terminal and couldn't figure how to work that when I don't have a phone number for the home. And I tried doing it through computer management but couldn't even find the option to simply change the name.

So How do you relabel my hard drive?

Thanks.

Go into MMC chose "disk management" Up the top right click on the drive you with to re-letter. Choose "change drive letter and paths" Click the HDD you want, click "change" choose your new drive letter. Click ok and your done

You buy a some sticky notes, peel of the current label, and then replace it.

Since I basically have the same problem I'll restate the question. What's MMC?

Have a program partially hardcoded to use the H drive (bad idea), which is now labeled E.

For me it's still called "Computer Managment". I go to the start menu, right click on "My computer" and choose "Manage". He simply gave me a different direction then what I had read on another place. His worked for me.
