Please help with my XP homework.....Using Volume Mount Points? RRS feed

  • Question

  • You have a user who needs to increase the amount of free space available to XP Pro.  The current hard disk is 20-GB with 1-GB free and is FAT32.  You help the user complete the installation of an additional 40-GB hard disk.  You configure the BIOS to recognize the newly installed drive and Disk Management recognizes both drives.  The user does NOT want an additional drive letter assigned to the the new hard disk space.  She DOES want to retain the original disk and its contents.  HOW CAN YOU CONFIGURE THIS COMPUTER TO MEET THE USERS NEEDS?  WHAT, IF ANY CHANGES WILL SHE NOTICE TO THE FILE SYSTEM?  WHAT, IF ANY, ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF USING VOLUME MOUNT POINTS?
