eStout Laptops: Renaming a drive and managing drive partition size and usage

Tips for managing drive partitions

Rename the D: drive to replace the space with an underscore (student data to student_data)

The default name for the data partition on an HP eStout student laptop is D:\student data. To rename, perhaps to remove the space and replace it with an underscore as in the following example:
    1. Launch a command prompt (Run as administrator)
    2. Type and execute: mklink /J d:\student_data “d:\student data” 

Remember, when visiting the Technology Helpdesk in 109 Sorensen Hall, drive modifications could impact imaging so backing up data thoroughly prior to service is important!
