It is likely not reparable as changing the OS partition drive letter almost always ruins the OS beyond Repair.

However there is a tool Paragon Rescue CD which you can boot and try to restore the C letter to the partition. It is normally used in another case where the drive letter is changed due to problems during imaging, but it does work: Paragon rescue disk; change drive letter; recover data

You should also be able to copy out your data to external with the same CD.

Remember the ISO needs to be burned to CD using Windows Image Burner or ImgBurn.

Boot the Paragon cd - select Normal Mode , then Boot Corrector.

Correct drive letters in the system registry.
