    Talking about this problem, I actually faced this before but didn't bother to get back all my stuffs there since it wasn't important.

    But, I'm interested now to know what is the root/cause of this problem? When I'm in DOS, the C drive display exactly what's on C but when formatted C, it formatted D instead. Anyone know WHY?
    It's unfulfilled dreams that keep you alive.
