Windows 7: Changing drive letter

Changing drive letter

Hello
I "reorganized" my Windows 7-64 bits PC (added some new disks, reorgabizing directories ...)
I renamed some of the disks so they are clear for me
But there is one disk I cannot change
I want to rename F: to Z:

Inside the Drive management Console, i can
- access disk F:
- select Z: as the new name letter

But whn i click to start the renaming i have an error message that says "Invalid parameter" or "Incorrect parameter" (I use a french version of Windows so the exact message is "paramètre incorrect"

Any idea where this could come from ? It seems all the disks are correctly defined and activated

Thanks for your help Have a good day

Post a maximized/resized screen print of Disk Management so all info is displayed using these instructions:
Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

One possibility, if you have a Page File on F that might be why you can't change the drive letter.
