My computer is not recognising my second hard drive (e drive) - it is not showing up if you go to Start/My Computer and if you click on any programme short cuts to launch from that drive it can not find them.
The only thing of difference that I (think) I have down is remove a couple of programmes from the Start/All Programmes/Start Up file to clean up start up.
I was getting a couple of error messages for a Symantec programme - so decided to delete the whole programme to see if rebooting would bring the hard drive back but nothing.
Any help on locating the hard drive and re-installing without losing the info on it would be much appreciated.
How about device manager ? is it listed...i doubt it will be.
If the pc is not new and under warranty,i would check the ide/sata cables within the tower...possibly come loose...remove the E:\ drive and reconnect.Though this would be unlikely unless you have been inside the tower.
the hard drive appears in device manager...interestingly if I click on the C: drive in device manager there is a button that allows me to disable the drive - but for my second drive there is no such button.
Computer not new, and I have not been in the tower, and as device manager is showing the drive I can only presume it is not a loose cable.
