    You can use diskpart from command prompt to remove the letter D as recovery shouldn't have a letter.

    Code:
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> diskpart
    
    Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.16299.15
    
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.
    On computer: X201
    
    DISKPART> select volume D
    
    Volume 2 is the selected volume.
    
    DISKPART> remove
    
    DiskPart successfully removed the drive letter or mount point.
    
    DISKPART> exit

    Wonderful! I'll do this as soon as I can! Thank you.

    And, thank you, cereberus, for your MiniTool suggestion. I'll investigate further.

    lx07...diskpart was an easy and quick solution to a vexing woe. Many, many thanks. This was really simple and fast.

    cereberus...I found MiniTool Partition Magic a bit confusing at first because there's no easy way to find "shrink" in the command structure. But once I caught on, it worked just great. I think all is well. But here is the image of the completed actions. Please let me know if you find any cautions, worries, pitfalls.

    And THANK YOU for recommending a tool that did exactly what I needed. Gracias! Merci! Danke!
