Hey all,

I need to move my OS to another drive (D:), pull the OS drive (C:), and rename D: to be the new C: (whew...).

Any tips on the easiest way to approach this? Is it even doable without third-party software (e.g. Ghost, etc.)?

Can I copy the entire contents of C: over to D: (which is currently empty), shut down, pull C:, boot off of D:, then rename D: to C:? (sounds "iffy" with my minimal knowledge).

I <b>really</b> want to avoid yet <i>another</i> Win2K install.

Cheers, and thanks for the hand!

You just might be able to pull this off, eh? :wink:
