External USB Hard Drive letter re assigned

  KBat 16:50 17 Mar 2008

Can anyone provide me with assistance?
I have an external USB hard drive which was originally assigned a Drive Letter M. I use this drive to store Norton Ghost Backups / restore points. The drive letter never changed, always remaining as M, even when the drive was switched on after boot up. Since using a SanDisk USB stick drive, the assignment for my External Hard Drive has changed to F. This will not be recognised for backups by Norton Ghost. I can still see the contents of my external drive in Explorer but it is now under Drive F.
Is there any way I can re assign the correct letter to the External Hard Drive and also fix it so that it doesn't change in the future.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
Many thanks.
