    Question on Changing Hard Drive Letter?.


    I am running Windows 10 Home Edition, Version 20H2, OS Build 19042.985. Recently with the help of some forum members I installed a new Samsung 970EVO 1TB NVMe SSD as my "C" drive and imported all from my older 125GB Samsung SSD using the Samsung migration tool. It all went well apart from one thing.

    I have two other internal hard drives, a Samsung 500GB and a Toshiba 1TB which I use for storage. Under the previous SSD the Samsung was designated drive "D" and the Toshiba drive "F". The new NVMe SSD drive "C" has designated the Samsung as drive "F" and the Toshiba as drive "D". Not a problem you might think until I go to transfer a file from the C drive to either of the other two using the "send to" menu option which still keeps the older designation so if I send a file to drive D from C it goes to drive F instead and vice versa. Of course as I know of the problem I can just remembver to send them to the correct drive but it would be easier if I could just change the drive designations to the proper D & F the same as the SSD but don't know how to do this?.

    Any help again greatly appreciated.
