I like to keep my external drive as driver letter F. This wasn't a problem until about this time last week, when it started changing each time the computer would sleep or reboot. It proceeds to move up A letter each time, in which used to be easy to fix but I cannot seem to find the option with Windows 7 therefor I have to use Easus to get it back to normal... which requires a reboot each time. Partition Star doesn't even recognize it anymore.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

That method works great because it only requires one restart (To make the letter available) but I am still having a problem with it changing after it gets disconnected, or the computer sleeps.
