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.
