Where did my drive go?

By LiveNDieN LA ·
I am running an intranet webserver using IIS4.0 on an NT4.0 workstation in a Novell 4.11 enviroment.
On the webserver I have a second hard drive (d:)that contains all our intranet content. ICAN access this content from all browsers in our company.

But when I go to explorer on the webserver there is no d: drive visible.

I was able to access the content through a shortcut to a folder on d: (on the webserver) I then backed up in explorer until I could view all the folders on the drive. But I was unable to access them because of an "access not allowed error" .(I always log in as administrator and there are no other local users). I chose properties and selected all folders then took ownership, I was then able to copy the files to our Novell server. I updated service packs for IIS and NT but I still do not see d: in the explorer.
The webserver was fine for months. Then this happened.

Any suggestions?

Check and make sure the cd rom drive is not set to use drive. If so the two are conflicting over the name and one or both will not work properly until you change the drive lettering.

This is a good suggestion , I had already thought about it. There is no cdrom drive for this machine.

Using the administrator tool Disk Administrator, check the drive configurations. You may find it assigned to another letter, which if you desire you can change to . Also, while you are there, check the web share properties of the drive to check for any obvious problems.

This is a good suggestion , I had already thought about it. There is no cdrom drive for this machine and the drive letters assigned are all correct. The d drive even shows here, but is not available in the Explorer.
