Thanks BikerEcho, that all seems pretty straightforward. However, when I click on 'Change' none of the drive letters appear in the list of options. All of the remaining letters of the alphabet are there, but none of the ones that I want.
Is there a way to overcome this or am I stuck with the choices given?
Thanks again for helping.

You can still reorganise your drive letters in the way Bikerecho says but it does become a tad more complicated.
Just spotted your input pete.i I have replied to BikerEcho above, I expect you will spot it.
Thanks for coming in on my query. be interesting to see if there is a way around this.
