I have 2 identical SATA-2 drives I use for backup purposes. Basically I have got e-Sata/USB2.0 cradle and 2 drives. When I need to do a peform a backup I "on" the drive cradle, do a backup, when replace a drive in a cradle with another one - idea is to keep each drive in different locations to make sure that backup data is not lost in case of theft or fire.
The PROBLEM is that when I power the cradle - one of the drives successfully gets a drive letter - I use the same "L" letter for both no be able to use the same backup scripts with each drive, while another one fails to assign a letter itself so I have to do it manually in a
Computer Management snap-in -> Storage -> Disk management -> RMB click on a drive item -> Change drive letter and paths.
It is annoying to do it every time for one drive while I don't have to do for another - absolutely identical drive.
Any ideas how to make a drive letter stick to the second drive?
