Im trying to get rid of the 8mm tapes that we use to backup our Exchange server.

Problem is if I use USB hard disks I have to re import the drive in Device Manager every time. I tried to setup a drive letter and hoped that the server would "remember" the disk and assign it the same drive letter. This is not he case. I have to go into device manager each time to re import the disk.

Am I missing something here?

Generally speaking, the drive letter should always remain the same after the drive has been completely installed unless other drive letters have changed.

I have a usb hard drive and it's always assigned the same drive letter. Also it never is not recognized and works perfect with all my backups. What type of drive is it?

You want some Glock with that?
