I cannot find a way to combine C and D into one skin but have found a way to use it.

Everything I have highlighted in red which is basically anything with C can be changed to any drive letter. Also I made a copy of the original folder and renamed it to System HDD 2 and the renamed the C.ini to D.ini that way you can have it running for two different drives.
How do I change the values in this rainmeter skin for another drives-system-hdd-2.png

Below this is what I get when I run the original plus the second one I made.

Here is a what I got after doing some additional editing to the second one removing the second System HDD and the second swap and moving the text up so it looks more like it's just one skin just as an example to show you what can be done.

You're welcome

I was not able to find a way to combine two or three together I explained that in the post above earlier but I had to do it same way you did make a separate folder for each drive.

I'm using a custom third-party theme to get the dark gray window.

Here is some information that may be helpful

You will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
