    Pen Drives & Letter assignments

    anyone know of a way to force all USB pen drives to use the same drive letter . I know that the registry holds a log of letter assignments, but this seems to go by PC

    so if pupil A plugs a SAN-DISk drve in he'll get letter E:
    but if Pupil B then logs in later, and plugs in a different model of pen-drive, he'll probably get letter F: as the PC has already assigned E: to Pupil A's pen drive

    I need a safe way to delete this "cache" so that no matter what drive is plugged into the PC, it will always be letter E:

    I have never had that problem, so long as the drive is not there it will then reuse the letter what ever the make or model or user for me

    Thats what happens with me as well. I always know they will be the d: drive as well as our computers dont have any floppy/optical drives in them on the student PCs.
