1. I inserted a Cruzer SD drive into an open USB port. The computer assigns the drive the letter K. I wish for the drive to be assigned G. The Cruzer is already in the uppermost of two USB ports. Is there a way I can force XP to call the Cruzer G instead of K?
2. Someone had apparently inserted and removed a USB flash drive several times on this same computer without properly closing and ejecting the device. As a result, XP had cycled through the alphabet to the next available letter. I had set a third party backup program to go to a particular drive letter. I know that I could (and did) reboot the computer allowing the computer to recognize that the drive letters it thought were in use were not and for the computer to then reorder all available drive letters. However IS THERE a way to force XP, without rebooting, to reset available drive letters? Clicking on my computer in explorer and hitting the View/Refresh does not work.
