I have a hard drive seperated in 2 partitions, but now after installation my pc won't show second hard drive

Hi there,

On the time while I was installing new windows 7 64 bit, I have a hard drive seperated in 2 partitions, but now after installation my pc won't show second hard drive on My Computer. It shows only drive C: but not drive D:
What should I do to get back drive D: ?

  1. Could you check in the 'Disk Management' section if it will show two drives?
  2. I am worried to ask because I never had any issue with hard drives so where I can found 'Disk management'' and what exactly I need to in there?

    Here's How:

    Click on the Start button and then choose 'Control Panel'.

    Click on the 'System and Security' link.

    Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link so just click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.

    In the System and Security window, click on the Administrative Tools heading located near the bottom of the window.

    In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.

    When Computer Management opens, click on 'Disk Management' on the left side of the window, located under Storage.

    After a brief loading period, Disk Management should now appear on the right side of the Computer Management window.
  4. Thank you for your help. I found 'unlocated' drive and did manage to create volume, so now second drive. Thank you very much!
