Just had to reformat and instal winxp to my C drive but now after reinstal my D drive( a seperate drive with all my data on is showing up as only a local fixed disc and no other data. It id have 3 partitions on it but only showing as a d drive now. I didnt reformat that one only the c so any ideas???

just a thought

when you reinstalled did you install it as fat or ntfs

if the origional install was ntfs your d drive will be formated to ntfs and if you reinstalled as fat32 fat32 can not read ntfs

I formated the C drive as NTFS but the d drive now shows as only a raw disk? If i formated the c drive to NTFS then it should be able to read the other drive shouldn't it.
