I am in the process of upgrading my hard drive for my laptop.

I am using Ghost 9 to copy my old hard drive to my new one.

I am curious, my old drive was labeled C but my new hard drive will be labeled G

Will that have any effect on my laptop once I make the physical swap?

Will my computer boot correctly?

Is there anything else I should be concerned about?

Any help appreciated,

thanks

Presumably you are doing this in a desktop currently ?
TBH not too sure what will happen when you put it back in the laptop, but the reason it's showing as G currently is because your PC has already allocated the other letters, I can only hope this will rectify itself when you put it back in the laptop, certainly can't hurt to try.

Unless it's a quirk in ghost, the drive letter of the drive your ghosting to should remain c: when you put it back into the laptop. Ghosting won't change the paths (environmental variables) on the drive when it "copies" the drive and drive letters aren't determined by what's on the drive (as far as drive lettering is concerned). Instead, the physical location of the drive and the partition type determine the drive letter. Since the drive type (copied by ghost) and location ( you are physically putting it in the same location in the computer) will be the same after it is installed the actual drive letter will remain the same
