Successfully installed a new external hard drive(freecom 160GB to Windows XP)yesterday.Created mirror image of my entire C Drive using Acronis 7 - also successfully. Booted system this morning and switched on external HD to discover that there is no sign of Ext HD in My Computer. Device manager tells me hardware is working OK so where has it gone?
No yellow exclamation marks to be seen. Before I created my mirror image I did use the Acronis secure zone facility but I would not have thought that that would stop the device appearing in my computer.
ed-O there is a drive of the right size in the right hand window but but has no designation beside it. C is my main drive/D my recovery drive / and yesterday the ext HD was showing as (J) Even without a designation letter its status is showing as healthy(active)
