    I have a Windows 98 machine and have a USB board in it. I have an external harddrive connected to one of the ports. I at times connect other equipment, and when I do the drive letter gets changed. Since I have programs that look for data based on the drive letter, the data can not be found and I have to reconfigure the application. I would like to know is there a way to assign a perminate dive letter to the external drive?

    Thank you

    If memory serves me, it is in Device Manager, properties of the drive.

    Hi and welcome. I've moved this to hardware as it really doesn't fit under business applications. I see you've duplicate posted, so I've close that one. In the future, please post only once.

    You can also assign that device as letter Z, then it would always be last and nothing would be able to bump it down.
