    You can change drive letters in disk management as long as it is not a system drive [where windows is installed]. Just right click the drive you want to change and select change driver / path from the menu.

    It is possible to change a system drive letter, however I do not recommend that you do so. It is an involved process and many apps will need to be reinstalled.
