When you boot Vista, Vista will take the "C" designation and Win 7 will be another.
If your two partitions have recognizable Labels then, using "Computer", you can figure which is which.
This is the way it went in earlier releases. Also in earlier releases the "old windows" didn't show and you had to assign a Drive number to it to see it in Win 7.
Sorry, I don't have a dual boot machine, They are all pure Win 7

Thank you very much Dick. That certainly would explain the switches that I see going on in every time I switch operating systems, from vista to Windows 7.
I am presently in the process of installing a new win 7 installation on a new blank hard drive.
I didn't mention in my earlier posts in, realizing later that the problems seem to start six days ago
When my omega 1 GB external hard drive which I was using for backing up, suddenly started Chirping at a rate of around 60 to 70 times per minute, and was no longer readable. I was sure that the problem was a dislodged reader arm on the unit, omega agreed, and I put the new one in today, which works perfectly, but from here on out system restore goes on a four GB DVD, or it may be uploaded to .Symantec off-site storage.
Thanks to everyone, and thank you Dick for the switcheroo mechanism.
