    Change ALL references to a particular drive letter

    I want to change ALL references to E:\ to D:\ both in file names themselves & text within all file names on an entire drive. I know how to do this with the registry but not how to search & change a whole drive worth of files. Anyone know how to do something like this? Any suggestions, warnings...

    Solved Programs that "should" run at startup are not starting up.

    Not just yet but I keep 7 days of Macrium Reflect image copy backups that run nightly. It is in my bag of rescue ideas. Thanks for your time Brink. I'll get this fixed sooner or later. Have a great day!!! Jim

    Solved Programs that "should" run at startup are not starting up.

    I run Win 8.1 from the desktop almost exclusively. The programs that aren't running do not need admin privileges to run. I followed the link you supplied and used it, but it didn't change anything. Programs are still not running at startup.

    Solved Programs that "should" run at startup are not starting up.

    I have multiple programs that are supposed to run at startup are no longer starting up. Msconfig says they should start up & another program I use shows they should be starting up. They used to run just fine. Something has changed preventing them from running. Anyone have any ideas? Help!! Jim

    I get to the new win 8 graphical boot screen, but the timer is not working at all. I've tried to change the timer from the default 30 seconds to 15 seconds & back again with no success. It will sit on that boot menu for as long as I choose to wait before making a selection. Anyone have any...

    Solved manage attachments????

    Brink, I think I know what the culprit here is and it is all tied to my dual boot issue you referred to above. I booted into win 8 & came back here to the Dual boot Win7/Win 8 - Drive letter issues post & had no trouble with sending the attachement if you look at that post. I think if I can get...

    Solved manage attachments????

    Thanks, Kari. I disabled the Pop-up blocker in internet option and have the same results.

    I can't seem to be able to attach any thing here. When I get to the manage attachments window & click on browse all it does is blink the screen at me & that's it. Beets me? I put 1 out there yesterday in a different thread.
