I have a USB drive that i connect to my laptop every morning when i switch it on at work. I have an indexing type applicaiton that indexes files on my laptop and stores them on the USB drive.

I configured the indexing application to save files on drive F: but sometimes when i log on the USB drive is assigned drive D:

I noticed there is an option to change the drive letter under "Computer Management" > Storage > Disk Management but is there a way to make the drive association permanenent?

If you do that it is relatively permanent. I say relatively because if another drive takes that letter first then obviously it won't. The trick is to pick a letter further up the alphabet, far enough that nothing should take it first. I usually pick letters above J for just that reason.
