Okay I'm thinking your saying your drive letter changed on the PC the quickest fix for this would be to go to disk management in Windows and change the letter back to the one your PC was originally using. To fix it in NP++ you would need to close LB go to the Data\Platforms and choose the platform you want to edit then go to search in the toolbar menu and select find in find type in the part of your path you want to change so really if you wanted to only change the drive path you would type F:\ then you would click the replace tab and type in K:\ and click replace all.
