Stablebit not keeping Drive letter

Question

I have created a pool and want it to be "D" drive but whenever i turn on or connect another hard drive it would always make the newly connected drive as "D drive" and then automatically change the pooled drive to a different letter...

This is a Windows issue, actually.  It auto assigns the drive letter, and can bump the letter like this.  

 

The best recommendation here, unfortunately, is to assign a letter that is much further along in the alphabet (such as "P:\" for Pool, or "S:\" for Storage), as this should prevent it from being reassigned a letter.

The problem with "fixing" that.... is that it could actually cause a LOT of problems.  

Right now, we leverage the normal disk APIs and functionality from Windows, without doing anything.  That way, it's handled in a consistent, and sane manner.  Relatively speaking.   Changing that behavior means forcing the drive letter, at best.  And that could break things. 

And ... this is a Windows issue that has been around since at least Windows 95.
