Changing the root drive for CMD....

Posted by Shashank Krishna Thursday, January 15, 2009


sharethis: You might be aware of DOS prompt....its nothing but the cmd command.....
Just click the START button,n then click on the run button.....then in the box type cmd or cmd.exe.
U can observe dat the command prompt by default starts as...
C:\Document and Settings\>
so if u need to change the root directory to another drive of ur system..like
D:\> or
E:\>.....etc.
All u need is to copy the cmd.exe or cmd file which is located at
C:\WINDOWS\system32
and paste it in the drive u need.....
then when u run it from the desired hard drive..
u can see the root directory to be the letter of that drive...

or
just press the drive letter followed by the symbol colon ":"
like D:
E:
etc....
