There is an option in Disk Management to change the drive letter -- but I have to admit, I've only used it with CD/DVD drives. You would have to change U to something other than S, then change S, then change the former to U. But, this will affect any app that uses the former drive letters, and any setting that uses them, as well.

An example is the default download directory used in Browsers.

Windows Explorer may display it that way because D: and S: are probably in the one extended partition which contains the logical drives. So having D: followed by S: makes some sense. I'd just accept it if you don't want to change the letters.
