SSD System drive

Hello, i just got my SSD, i got windows installed on it so it's the C drive. I have 1 more HDD and a external HDD so it looks like this:

C:\ - SSD system drive
D:\ - HDD 1
E:\ - External HDD

Now i want to know if it's possible to change the system drive to D, and D to C so i have Windows on the D drive.

Why would you need to slow your PC down?

I want my OS on my SSD and i want my SSD to be D, not C so i have to change the install path everytime I install something... How will that slow my PC down?

Do you want to install programs to a spinning drive purely because the SSD is too small to hold your applications?

It requires reinstallation from another OS holding the letter C, rather than booting the installer so Windows 7 always claims C.

It is likely not the best solution for what you want to do, though, so please explain more fully what you are trying to do or avoid. You can change the install path for almost all programs nowadays.
