    If you really like to see different drive letters you could use "subst", it's a integrated windows application that makes a folder appear as a another drive/partition/etc.

    SUBST is a command on the DOS, IBM OS/2 and Microsoft Windows operating systems used for substituting paths on physical and logical drives as virtual drives. (Taken from wikipedia)

    yeh i know about v-drives. but my problem is. everytime i reinstall win7 i have to install F***** everything again, its like 4/5 hours work with games and such.. (not to mention Steam wich is over 250 gb download @ 600 kb/s -_-). So if i have seperate drives for like games apps besides the boot dir, then i can safely reinstall windows, and repair most of the apps/games on the fresh install, i've tried that a looong time ago with v-drives but somehow that doesnt work together..... so i have just 3 partition on the 1.5 tb and 1 on the 600 gb. for now im alright with this, but should i reconsider i can always use gpt..
    Thanks for the link FordGT90Concept
