T61 - Rescue and Recovery - USB Drive issues

Ran into disk space issues with RnR on my C: since I was not manually using RnR and have other back-up tools, I uninstalled RnR.  A few weeks later, I re-installed the latest RnR version as I now have possesion on a USB Western Digital drive.  I then ran RnR to the USB drive.  Here is the problem:

 

The USB drive now has a new drive name and letter desigation, from drive G: to drive Y:  The real killer is that I had other files on drive G:

 

Looking at the drive size, it appears that ALL files are still on the USB drive. 

 

Question:  How do I get the drive to be recognized as drive G:?  How do I get access to the files that were on that drive?  Would un-installing RnR set the drive back to C: and provide access to my files?

 

Note:  There was no warnings during the back-up that any of this would happen.  I can't find any warnings or descriptions in the manuals either.

Vista - start - computer - right click - manage - (if uac on, accept) -  disk management - select the disk- right click and you are given the oportunity to change the drive map (i don't know if that helps)
