My primary user file USB attached disk drive (Seagate Freeagent) was working as drive "F:" but now is assigned as drive "I:", probably because of plugging in from time to time flash drives, cameras, etc. 1) why did it change?; 2) can I change it back? and how?. Also I get this phantom drive ("g:") that pops up at each reboot - there is nothing there (when I try to open - Win says "enable") Is that a vestigial image left over from a flash drive?

right click on my computer, then choose manage, then go to disk manager, locate the drive you're wanting to re-assign, right click it and choose "assign drive letter", change it to whatever you want it to be

No, but I have some SanDisk memory sticks that gets recognized as 2 different drives, only 1 of which can be opened.
