Question: I want my computer to recognize an external hard drive on a specific letter all the time. How?
I use my computer personally and for school. It has dual hard drives recognized as C: & D:, a back up partition recognized as E:, & a DVD drive recognized as F:. It’s been configured by the IT department to connect to a network drive when on campus known as “The Student G: Drive”, as well as a personal storage H: drive.
The problem is that I also have a 500 GB Lacie external hard drive that I occassionally connect as well as a 2 GB SanDisk flash memmory stick. Sometimes I plug these devices in and Windows XP automatically recognises them and assigns the appropriate I: or J: designation.
Sometimes when not on campus & as such, not connected to the “Student G: Drive” (Always present under network drives in the My Computer Tab), XP will recognise my Lacie/ SanDisk drive as the “Student G: Drive”. Other times it will not allow me to connect to these devices at all even though the “Remove Hardware” icon shows up.
Can I set XP to always connect to the Lacie as I: drive? How?

Question: I want to replace my hard drive. How do i backup my entire hard drive into the hard drive that i will replace?
My hard drive has gone bad, and i want to backup my entire hard drive. However i don’t know how to do it and what equipment to use. I know how to remove the hard drive and install a new one.
I went to comodo.com and they offer a backup service called, “online backup”, where they back up your entire hard drive into their servers
The problem is its too expensive. They charge over $ 60 an year for that. I’m broke. Please help.

Plug both hard drives in. Transfer all from one to the other and then take old one out.
