I am using an external HD to record my backups. It was identified by the letter F and I accordingly set my backup software to send the data to drive F.

However, after having disconnected the external HD, I note that it is now noted with the letter E. This caused my backup software to throw a hissy-fit.

Can I get a permanent ID for my drive?

I think each usb port has its own drive letter, so have you tried to put the usb in the same port?
