I have 2 computers here. Computer A has a SATA harddrive with 2 partions (200GB C and 700GB D) and Windows XP SP3 is installed on the C partition. At the moment computer A is dead and may or may not be recoverable.
Computer B has Windows 7 Pro 64bit, with a single partition SATA drive. I also have a USB/SATA enclosure that is can be used to plug and read another harddrive at any time.
I want to access the files from harddrive A using computer B, but I don't want to screw up the drive lettering - I can remember from experience that if the drive letter XP is installed on gets reassigned then Windows will boot up to a certain point, but login will fail when it can't locate required files on the "C" drive.
Is there any way after connecting the drive to computer B and copying files to reassign the drive letter back to C before disconnecting it, so that I can return it to the original machine unharmed?
