In the process of replacing a 250 Gig SSD with a new 500 Gig SSD. Yesterday I cloned the old drive, today I replaced the it with the new drive. It would not boot, so I loaded my Win 7 Disk and went into Repair mode. Some fiddling ensued, because for some reason the new drive had been designated by Win 7 (or perhaps by the cloning software) as "drive F:" and it was necessary to go through some side doors to change it to C:
Once the cloned drive was renamed it successfully booted the computer. However, there is a curious leftover problem:

In Disk Managment mode, the drive is named "C: (C:)" and no amount of renaming will reduce this to a simple, familiar "C:"
I am guessing the appended, parenthetical "(C:)" means something, maybe something important, e.g., a drive within a drive or some some such thing.
1) What does it mean?
2) Can I somehow get rid of the "(C:)"?
Thank you for your insights.
