I am a Windows noob here (coming from a linux background.) I am having a problem in the cmd prompt changing to a directory on a different drive. Either I haven't found any suitable answers for this particular scenario or I'm not searching with the correct terms. Here is the scenario...
I am on
C:\ and I want to change to a directory say
I know about the
/E switch for
cd, but it's not working in this case.
More, I have
D:\ on an SSD and my
E:\ is on an HDD, so they're on two different physical harddrives.
I can do
C:\> cd /D D:\specific\directory with no problem, but trying to
C:\> cd /E E:\specific\directory
I get the error
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
The only way it lets me on the
E:\ drive is with two commands i.e. if I do
C:\> e: first, then it lands on the
E:\ drive, then with a second
cd command I can navigate to whatever directory I want on
E:\. So is there any way that I can navigate from
C:\ to a specific directory on
E:\ in one command rather than two?
