i got 2 (two) 200GB sATA Drives, 1 (one) 80GB pATA Drive, 1 (one) LG DVD Combo Drive (Drive Y:), 1 (one) LG DVD Writer (Drive Z:) and a memory card reader installed on my machine permanently. i also have a 40GB 2.5inch on a mobile USB (Drive E:) enclosure which i used as my backup and mobile storage.
all drive assignments had been working fine for more than a year now. when i updated my firefox extensions & mcafee data files, after a reboot my Drive Y (which was assigned previously to my Combo drive) now was assigned as Drive E (which was assigned previously to my mobile HD drive - now assigned as Drive O). i restored the Drive assignments using the Disk Management MMC but after a reboot the changes i made did not take effect.
luckily, i have an active OS partition Ghost image which i restored back, but after making updates the problem is there again.
Please help, my drive assignments are vital to some of my critical applications.
thank you very much.
