Perhaps instead you'd like to use UUIDs to identify the file systems so that their numbers doesn't matter at all?
That way, even if you mount it in a usb3 external chassis and move it to another computer, everything would still work as expected since the disks won't be changed. It's easy to do. Your filesystems are defined in /etc/fstab. You might see something like:
/dev/sda1 /media/windows ntfs defaults 0 0
If you wanted to make it independent of its path, then you'd replace it with its UUID so that it became:
UUID=37bd1971-5b00-e923-2f3f-c1000972a254 /media/windows defaults 0 0
In order to get the UUID for a file system, you can use
sudo blkid /dev/sda1
which will return something similar to
/dev/sda1: UUID="37bd1971-5b00-e923-2f3f-c1000972a254" TYPE="linux_raid_member"
