I have two hardrives,one is partitioned in two so it shows up as diskC and diskE and the second drive is diskD. I want to remove the D hardrive but am to stupid to know how to get to my programs on my Edrive once it changes to Ddrive.
Can I simple rename it back to E: or do I have to go to each program and tell them they don't reside on E: any more but on D: ?

I think that the drive assignment should be; c: for the master drive, d: for the slave drive, and e: for the partition on the master drive.
physical drives get assigned drive letters first, then logical drives. if you remove the physical slave drive (d) make the changes in the bios (if necessary) windows will reassign the correct drive letters

You should be able to go into your control panel, under "system", and "reserve" the drive letters for your existing drives as the currently assigned letters. That way when you remove the "D" drive, the letters "C" & "E" will remain assigned to your partitioned drive.
