Windows 7 computer: Can I exchange the SATA cables of two drives without needing to re-install Windows? this computer only runs windows 7.
what's happening is that i have some backup software that has a bug. the bug is that it gets confused about two identical drives and sometimes backs up the wrong drive. it seems to "prefer" Disk 0 as listed in the "Volumes" page in the device properties dialog. my thought is that although the backup software's developers are looking into this problem, i may be able to make this problem go away by making the boot drive to be the first disk device.
Clarification: my thought is to unplug both drives and connect drive C where D was connected and D where C was connected. i really, really don't want to "break" windows.
