Using XP SP3   I have 2 USB drives that I use for backup.  The backup software goes to only 1 drive letter (ex: W).  I need the same drive letter (W) to be assigned to each of the 2 USB drives always.  I alter 1 USB drive everyother week.  

We've tried Disk Manager, change drive letter, mount NTFS folder.  The first USB drive gets the W drive.  But when repeat steps for the second USB drive to get W drive letter will cause first USB drive to go back to windows default such as D.
