Hard Drive Partition disappeared from My Computer

By uau242 ·
Hi all,

Would appreciate some advice. I was looking at freeing up space on my internal hard drive partition named E: which i managed and then set about freeing up space on external hard drive. i used Spacemonger and also had a look at partition magic. Now, my E: has disappeared from My Computer and i had to use getmydataback to recover the files on it. It is visible in Computer Management's Disk Management but it simply shows the amount of space on the partiton, nothing more! Can anyone advise me what steps to take??

You were in the right place there. Right-click on the free space and select Change drive letter or paths. Assign it any letter you wish and VOILA!! Your partition will be usable again.
