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:
- Launch a command prompt (Run as administrator)
- 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!
