I was thinking about tackling this annoyance this weekend if I could safely comprehend the method of doing so. My Gateway Desktop's (running XP service pack 2) C: harddrive crashed. The internal slave H: drive (Seagate 200 GB) was fine. I purchased an internal Seagate 160 GB to replace the crashed C: drive. I installed the new drive and after reinstalling XP, XP is now on my H: (slave). I just double checked and my serial cable's master (black) is definitely plugged into my new 160 GB drive that is labled as H: and my serial cable's slave (gray) is definitely plugged into the drive that was the slave before (the 200 GB) but is now listed as C:. In any event, I know I can't just swap these drive letters via the control panel (I was able to swap my DVD drive and DVD/CD writer drive which after my reinstall had changed from their normal D: and E: respectively). So I'm just looking for a little guideance as I don't want to accidently delete any data in trying to fix this issue which really is liveable, just annoying and confusing my wife. My question is, what is the easiest way to fix this. I now have True Image 8 so I'm thinking that may make this process simpler. I was thinking that "Transferring the system to a new disk" (page 38 of the manual) may be the method to use. I figured in order to do this it would be wise to take everything off the C: drive (currently it has two backups of my pictures, music, etc. and a True Image image of my H: drive that has XP on it). BUT when I go to my computer and try to manually delete the folders containing my backup information (I'm not referring to the True Image image here - I haven't tried to delete that yet) created by Bounce Back Express, it won't delete. With other folders the box pops up saying the delete is to big for the recycle bin, etc. and I usually just hit yes and it deletes it. With this backup folder, I say yes to delete, the box pops up for a couple second and then closes but nothing is gone. I then went to My Computer, right clicked on the C: drive, hit "Format" and tried both a quick and regular format but they both fail. Is there some type of protection that prevent a person from deleting certain stuff from the C: drive since normally the C: is the one with the OS on it? Anyway, the C: drive has 158 of used space and 27.6 of free space and unless I get rid at least some of this information, I won't have enough room to transfer my system to the C: drive. Obviously, I'd like to get all information off this so the C: would only contain my OS and I can go back to making backups to my H: drive. Any ideas would be great. Even a different solution to getting the C: and H: swapped back to normal would be welcomed. Thanks.
