Close down your computer completely in the normal way, then make a cuppa tea for 10 mins, then re-start your computer. It worked for me!

Re-start in safe and do s System Restore back to when all was ok.

Try right clicking on My Computer, then click on Manage option. In the next box that comes up, click on Disk Management, bottom left. Then look in the window bottom right for your drive. Is it there?

Hope this is in the right thread this time, T-tiger ;-}
