One of my computers at work died, or at least its C drive did.
It’s a major machine, I use it for editing video, and so I have tons of HDD space, with lots of separate drives attached. Three of those drives are irrelevant, they’re just attached via Firewire and I switch them on and off as needed.
But my C and D drives are IDE. I replaced my dead C drive and reinstalled XP Home onto it, and for some reason it has renamed my previous D drive to C, and made it a system drive, and my new Boot Drive is now called D.
What the heck happened? How do I fix it? Should the Boot and System drives be separate? Should I keep them separate, and is that safe if I use my other (System) drive for storing video and stuff?
