I have been building a computer up from parts donated.
I have put in an 80Gb hard drive which is split into 2 x 40Gb (or
thereabouts). I used fdisk on another machine to create the 2 sections. The
first I created was 40Gb for drive C which I then made active. I then used
the rest of the drive as drive D logical drive.
Having put it into the computer and installed Windows XP everything was
working fine. I formatted drive D within Windows and all was well.
I installed yet another 20Gb drive just for my personal files area. upon
booting up, Windows XP recognised that the new drive was there and said it
was installed and ready for use. I could even see it in Device Manager.
The problem is, the 20Gb drive does not show up in Windows Explorer, so the
question is, "Where has my drive gone".
