Yesterday I added a second harddrive to my computer , I got it from a friend , well... it was in the folder "My Computer" as E: but I wanted to scrub its contents , I have System Mechanic 4 pro and used its Drivescrubber function ... all was well , it scrubbed the drive but when I restarted I cant see it in My Computer but its listed in Device Manager as working properly and the drivers are installed .... does anyone know why its not listed in My Computer ?

Have you partitioned and formatted the 2nd drive, as I had exactly the same problem last night, with the drive now showing in my computer & Windows Explorer.

What happened is exactly what would be expected.

My Computer only shows logical drives. After you scrubbed the disk you removed these.

What you need to do is go to 'ControlPanel-Administrative tools-ComputerManagement-DiskManagement'. Here you can see both the Physical & Logical disks. You can also creat a new logical disk in the free space.
