HELP! Software installed in D:, but that is now C:

  1. Hi and greetings from South America!

    I had problems with my laptop and so, to solve those problems (a crashed hard disk), a friend has created another partition. Initially, it was C: and D: (E: was the CD-Rom), where C: was supposed to be the "crashed section" (around 10 Gb) and D: was the good part (around 30 Gb).

    However, everytime the computer was rebooting by itself and so he is trying to change the partitions: C: will be the GOOD ONE (around 30 Gb), D: is the CD-Rom and E: the crashed section (around 10Gb).

    Guess what? Even though all software is already installed (Word, Notetabligh, AVG), it does not recognise because, of course, it is pointing to D: (and now I am C:...).

    Please, anybody has an idea on how to change this WITHOUT having to reinstall all?

    Regards,


    Marcelo

    Get a new hard disk... Seagate or Western Digital. Do not listen to friend. Us damaged drive for storage or external.
