Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums

    On thursday I am replacing all my 1TB HDD with new drives, after copying all my backups to the newer bigger drives, I will be reinstalling windows to a new SSD drive. the question is after the copying backups and mounting my new drives can I change drive letters (not C) to new ones without losing data?

    I have 1 drive with L: etc but would like it to be D: etc. I think I can but want to be sure.
