Safely changing partition location. This the right forum?

Windows 7 reinstalled from old image. The partitions have changed. C: is on a solid state physical drive. Both D: and E: are on a 2nd physical hard drive.
D: Data
E: Data

D: D
E: System
F: Data

What is the safest way to get back my old configuration so that my 2 data disks are D: and E:

Thank you.

I had to restore an old image which obviates this problem. Presentations are as they were originally.

I appreciate your response.
