Yesterday I Reinstalled XP Pro. It showed my Partitions 'C' with my OS and 'F' with all my Personal Data. Foolishly I Deleted 'F.' I should have kept 'F' with all my Personal Data on it and Installed XP Pro on 'C'.
Any way I took the option to create a Partition. XP Pro is now on 'C.' Great! However in Disk Management I can see both Partitions - 'C' Healthy System. But the other Partition has no Letter assigned to it - Unallocated. I have Right Clicked this Partition but can't Format it or Assign a Drive Letter. It had a Black Bar above it like 'C'
I Right Clicked it and Choose New Partition and it has a GREEN Bar above now.
Now if I Right Click it I get New Logical Drive & Delete Partition. I have Deleted it and gone back to Unallocated.
