    Change Drive Letter

    Server 2003

    We have stopped backing up onto tapes and purchased 3 removable hard drives. Label "Backup Dk 1" "Backup DK 2" & "Backup Dk 3"

    Currently having to manual change the drive letter of the hard drive to drive z:\

    I was hoping there is a script that will change the drive letter from D:\ to Z:\ that will run before backup starts.

    Or a script that will assign a certain drive letter because of the drives name.

    Just assign the drives the same letter in disk management. Once you put plug is back in it will use the same letter again.
