Question about Computers & Internet
Since I bought my computer in January the second hard drive where my data is stored has been "D". today I noticed when I opened "my computer" d was assigned to a thumb drive i had inserted and my data appeared to be gone. I shut down and restarted my computer only to find that my data was there but is now named "G". This screws up several programs that look to "D" for data. Please help.
Open disk management
Find what ever is assigned drive D. change the drive letter to the next available drive letter (H: is my guess)
then change G: to D:
reboot, life should be good
(You can change the drive letters under the properties of a drive.)

If this is xp- you can manually force the drive letter assignment in computer management under disk management.
right click the my computer icon, go to management. In there go to disk management. In there you will see the drives and the drive letters. Right click on the drive, and go to change drive letter and paths. Should be pretty simple from there. By default it seems that any new drives are assigned the next available letter, all the way up to Z- but you can specify the drive letter any way you like.
