right click "my computer" and go down to "manage". then on the left click on where it says "disk management". then right click your E: drive and go down to "change drive letter and paths" and you should be able to change it. just be aware that this might mess up some of your programs that have a path that points to the e: drive.

You cant change the letter of your system drive. You may be out of luck.

thats odd that it didnt start out as C: the only other thing i can think of is RRR which is too extreme unless youve just started using the system today and dont really have any thing on it
