Can HP_RECOVERY be moved from d: to e:?

December 11, 2010 at 07:39:20
Specs: Windows 64, AMD Athlon / 5g
I would like to move hp_recovery from d: to another drive and increase the size of d:, so when I move the environment from another computer I will have less hassle setting up the new box.

I would leave it where it is.
Recovery software when activated will look for the files in that drive.

HKrenitz you can't move the "environment" to another machine. The HP OEM license lives and dies with that hardware. It not legal to move this to another machine.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Wanderer: Since these are all my source code files (all data) that I use in development, there are no legal issues. This is my development environment.

If you are moving your files and not windows files and need additional room now anyway, you can purchase another internal hard drive and install it. This will give you a larger single drive area for your files and make moving them much easier later. Also it will be better on the newer system to have them independent of the OS drive because it will easily survive a crash/reinstall of the OS and can even be unplugged while recovering to further protect it (don't forget to back up anyway though).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Additional space is not the problem. I need the drive designation to avoid referencing in many different places.
