Both home and school using a similar OS i suppose? Make sure you give full permissions to everyone, so that when you change machine you can still access you files.

As per how to keep a fixed driveletter, try here

Um, not really, since these are school computers and i doubt you can change system settings.

FIRESTORM  is the "lable" of your drive, I: is the drive letter of that drive(most likely because you have other drives.

when you go to school and the lable changes to Firestorm D: where D: is the drive letter asigned to the drive.

the only workaroud i can think of is if you make the lable read Firestorm I:, then when you stick it in your machine it will show up as "Firestorm I: I:"

Like Diane said, it'll be hard to modify school settings, but you COULD change your home settings by renaming your Firestorm to D: at home..
