How to manage Volume serial number changes in Azure


I'm have an issue with volume monitoring for virtual servers hosted in Microsoft Azure cloud.

In this cloud offer, servers are provided with temporary volumes like "d:\ Label:temporary Storage serial number: 12345ABCD"

My issue is that this kind of volume can change of serial number without any control.

Do you know any good practices to manage that?

Did you ever find a solution for this? This question came up for us recently and we are manually removing and re-adding the volumes. The other discussion is whether or not we monitor these drives at all. If MS is managing them and we can't/shouldn't store data on them, do we care if they fill up?
