Is it safe to rename a drive in SBS 2003

I have several drive on a SBS server 2003
E: This is where all the data is (exchange also) this is the drive I want to rename. I only want to rename it not change the drive letter.

Is it safe to do that, will it mess with exchange>?

No problem to change the drive name, changing the drive letter could have repercussions.
Windows itself does not use the drive names, they are more like mnemonics for the administrator so that on a multi-partition system he may not get lost in mere drive letters. Hence it doesn't matter to Windows (or Exchange) at all what you call a drive.
As torimar pointed out windows doesn't care. It goes by drive letter.
