Usb ext drive

  donmar 14:04 22 Oct 2007

I have vista and Ghost for bacup. Recently the ext drive letter changed and now ghost will not work with my bacup.

I know how to change the letter back but is it possible for a drive to have 2 letters?

Thank you.

It's possible for the drive letter to change - if for instance, you connect a memory stick.

It cannot have two letters at the same time, of course.

Perhaps you can change Ghost to use the new drive letter?

Thanks a lot. I don't know how to do that in Ghost 12 but I will try.I did use a memory stick and that was what changed the letter.

Try setting the drive letter of your external drive to, say P

Then connecting other things won't make it change, as they'll go in between the other drives and drive P.

Then redo your Ghosting usingP and it should stay OK into the future.

Sounds like a first class idea. Will do that now.

Thank you so much.
