Hello,
I am looking for the file or setting that keeps the order arrangement of files and folders by volume.

Example, when I open my external hard drive or a encrypted vault or any other kind of volume Letter assignable drive, as a certain letter that I used last, such as 'Q' then the files are arranged the exact way I last had them BUT if i open that drive as say 'L' then the files default back to some pre arranged order.


Thanks so much

I'm not sure that's possible. If you use a different drive letter how is Windows to know it's the same drive. Why not just use the same drive letter each time?

because if I open my drive as a certain later, the same one i used last time when i ordered my files in a certain arrangement (with auto arrange and align to grid OFF) then if i Open it again as the same letter the arrangement stay BUT if I open it as another letter the arrangement defaults back
