USB drives won’t maintain drive letter

On prior Win2003 servers, my series of removeable USB drives used for backup would remember their drive letter when I rotated them in & out. With my new 2003R2 server, it won't remember the drive letters, I have to reset them each time. Not a critical problem, but I was wondering if there was some registry key that needed editing, or even what function it is that controls this 'feature'.

I have never suffered this scenario, but here’s a link that may offer you suggestions that may be viable.

I also read once that this problem can be due to drive letters being ‘locked’ and this can be fixed using tweakui.
