The problem is visible on my thunderbird profile folder which I have on the 3rd partition that 14.04 shares with win7.

Direction 1: /media/XX/64XXXF<u>**1**</u>/Thunderbird/Profiles/67eayrv0.default
Direction 2: /media/XX/64XXXF/Thunderbird/Profiles/67eayrv0.default

Edit: change is after 64XXXF 1 appears and disappears each reboot

which makes me to change profiles.ini each time I open my computer.

Any suggestions?

    From the name of the mount-point, it seems that the drive is mounted by udisks (when the graphical environment starts). If this drive is present every time and used heavily, I would suggest to add it to /etc/fstab and give it a fixed mount point. See askubuntu.com/a/125277/16395 (without formatting, that is...) – Rmano Nov 6 '14 at 10:10

Your drive is mounted to a folder named like the partition name or if there is none like the partition ID. The second option might change. You can give the partition a name:

Go into the Disk Utility → select the drive → select the partition the right side → click the wheels below → edit file system → enter a name.

Next time you connect it, the partition should get a fixed name.

  • Before I'll try it - it won't format my data, right..? :> – Crowell Nov 7 '14 at 9:37

  • It's ubuntu, I don't trust my years of experience on widnows, here magic happens! I used Gparted and changed labels, now everything looks fine, thank you! – Crowell Nov 7 '14 at 10:17
