Windows remembers what drive when to what letter. You can change them back if you are comfortable using regedit. Instructions are HERE (external link).

Im on the registry editor now. I can see the J drive and the current K drive that is showing up for my HD. If i rename the K to J i get an error cause there is already a J drive there.

Alternatively you can just delete the registry KEY associated to J: also. It should free the letter for another drive. You should also reboot to flush the settings too btw.
