As long as you can read it does it matter whether it is E or F?

Try `Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management` right click on the external drive and select `Change drive letter and paths` click on `Change` and follow the instructions.

No promises but it`s the best I can think of.
