Why does USB port change?
Posted on 2011-02-18
I have an HP laptop with Win 7 Home Premium OS. it has only one USB port on the left side. I use it to back up Quickbooks, save fills, HD backup etc to a flash drive. Sometimes when I insert the flash drive the PC says it is the F drive and sometimes it says it is the G drive. It seems to change randomly.
Why does it do that and how can I stop it from happening?
My backup utilities and QB and other applications always first go to a designated drive so its a real hassle when it expects to send to the F drive but the PC has changed that USB port to G.
