Permanent Volume Drive for Detachable Hdd

By girijai ·
Dear Experts,

I have detachable NAS Drive's which is been used to take to two different locations everytime. I also share the drive so that people whom I need to give access are available to see it.

The Problem is that everytime I plug out and plug it back in - sometimes the VolumeDrive Changes from either H: to F: or Y: & this is all intermittent. The Share Drive is also gone - that means I have to re-assign permissions.

Anyway to fix this permanently when I remove it and then plug it back again so that it knows - this hdd should be for Y: only.

Any Answers will be helpful.

Best Regards,

Try rebooting the computer without any USB devices attached. Then plug in the USB drive, right click on My Computer, select manage, and then click ?Disk Management.? If the drive is not present in the Disk Management window or if you are not able to access it, then the drive may have failed. In this window you should see all of your connected physical drives, their format, if they are healthy, and the drive letter.

Change the drive letter of the drive. Right-click on the drive in the list, and from the resulting menu select "Change Drive Letters and Paths"

Click on Change so you can change the drive letter. Click Change. Select a new drive letter from the drop down list.
Click Yes on the confirmation screen and you are done.
