    On fairly new computer with a backup disc - I plugged in my card reader before the back-up one time and then plugged in back-up disc and my computer had now renamed my back-up disc to Local disc H - it was Local Disc G. The Card reader now has been assigned the name Local Disc G. Tried to shut down unplug everything and restart - not using card reader and turning on only back-up disc. This is a problem because all of my files for websites are in back-up disc so all of the pathways are wrong. Is there anyway to get my back-up disc back to Local Disc G? Thanks to anyone who knows what I can do to correct this.

    You can use Disk Management to re-assign the drive letters. You'll need to first re-assign H to something else and then assign the other drive to H, then do the other drive to G.
