(!) If you have a USB drive, it is recommended to plug it in after booting from Acronis Bootable Media, so that it does not receive the drive letter of your system partition.
In Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 you can change the drive letter representation. See Acronis Backup & Recovery: Linux-like and Windows-like Disk Representation in Acronis Bootable Media.
This is a standard behavior. It does not mean that the drive letters in Windows have been changed.
