    I wanted to change the drive letter and says this volume contains a page file
    and it won't let me. Can't format either.

    It sems you wish to change the drive letter for drive I:. Here are a couple
    of things you could try:
    - In Control Panel / System / Advanced, make sure that the size of the
    paging file on drive I: is zero.
    - Boot into Safe Mode when trying to change the drive letter.

    Changed to no page file and changed drive letter. Do I change the page file
    back to where it was?

    It is your decision how many paging files you want and where you want them
    to be.
