Rollback NTFS-part. drive letter change

By pieter.s ·
Unther win NT4 I created a second partition on my winchester drive, formatted it as an NTFS partition and assigned the free letter G: since E and F: where used for removable disks. I did moved some files on it, to see if it worked. After having freed the drive letter that was used for a non-used disk, I change the drive letter from G: to F: for that new partition. Supprise, supprise, now
it is unknown for the OS, it doesn't recognise it anymore as an NTFS-partition. Neither changing the drive letter is producing a result. Can I get it back as a usable NTFS-partition and recover the data on it?

Go to disk administrator and see if the drive
exist,you may havve deleted the drive letter when you made the change or look under the letter that you assigned the partition to replace.
Also you may check under windows explorer and see if the drive letter is there.

re-assigning the drive letter makes this partition also change from NTFS to 'nothing'; the partition is unsuable although there was about 1 giga data on it
