Drive letter for add-on disk


R

Robin Clay

Greetings !

I have an add-on USB hard drive. This always came up as Drive F:, but now
it comes up as Drive G: !

How can I set things up so that it ALWAYS comes up as Drive F: - the way it
used to be ?


Regards

Robin

USB drives will change drive letter whenever the drive gets connected
to a different USB port. Look for USBDLM utility for a better method.

Thank you both very much.

I've tried Andrew's suggestions, and will see what happens when I next boot
up. Perhaps I'll have to resort to the USBDLM utility !
