Hey guys. I'm trying to figure out how to identify like which disk letter (C drive, D drive, E drive etc.) corresponds to which physical hard drive. I've got a good guess by just looking at the partition sizes, but is there a way I can find out exactly which hard drive each letter drive is using in Windows XP? Thank you so much.

I think you have to look at the id info in raid or sata coltroller software.

Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.

In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears.

Your disks and volumes appear in a graphical view and list view. To customize how you view your disks and volumes in the upper and lower panes of the window, point to Top or Bottom on the View menu, and then click the view that you want to use.

Unhook one of your drives and see which drive letters disappear ^_^

Good one! :o

Hey Logical, thanks for the info man. Shortly after I made the post, I remembered to go to My Computer -> Manage -> Disk Management and did everything from there. I do appreciate the help however, thanks brah.
