documents saved on flash drive d and deleted

This is really difficult to explain, but if someone can figure out what I'm trying to say, and then formulate the answer, you'll be my hero!
Here goes: I saved a spreadsheet to my USB flash that was inserted into my laptop, and was able to view it on drive D. Then, someone inserted my USB flash into their desktop computer, and they viewed my files on drive E.
Ok, when I got my USB flash back, I saw all my files on drive D, EXCEPT the spreadsheet, whivch was missing. I couldn't find it anywhere, and suspected it had been deleted. So then, I clicked on the desktop trash can on my laptop, and saw my spreadsheet, but noticed that it was now on drive E.
My question is, did the letter drive change from D to E because the spreadsheet had been on my USB flash while in the other person's computer?

One drive can't normally be d and e so a file can't be in two places at once.

Windows tried to keep usb devices the same letter each time you insert it. That doesn't always work. If you force it to be a high letter then it tends to stay no matter how moves what.

You trash had to be the source of the delete if not from the flash from somewhere.

I doubt the spreadsheet file has anything to do with the whole issue.

In a very rare instance it could be some virus or odd program deal but I'd doubt it.
