I guess that by "stationnumber" you mean what I call the drive letter.

Log onto Windows with an administrator account.  Go into Control Panel|Administrative Tools|Computer Management|Storage|Disk Management.  Right click on the current D: which is supposed to be F:.  Go to "Change Drive Letter and Paths".  Change D: to some unused drive letter, maybe Q:  (I don't remember if you have to log off or reboot to make this take effect.  If you do, the machine will no doubt tell you.)

Now the letter D is free.  Go to the current F: which is supposed to be D:, right click as above, and change it to D:.

After you have done that, go to the current Q:, which was D: a few minutes ago and is supposed to be F:, and right click and change to F:, as above.

You should be finished.

Good luck.
