Going to keep it short: - Installed a couple of Windows Updates - Restarted PC - Windows Updates were being configured - PC restarted on it's own - While finished restarting, more configuration were done - Logged in
And then I couldn't see the partition D anymore, so I went to the Disk Manager and manually assigned a drive letter with success. But when I tried to access the partition I got the following error message: "You need to format the disk in drive D: before you can use it."
When clicking no I get the following: "D:\ is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted".
Is there anyway to solve this problem as I don't want to delete the partition or go for data recovery.
Thanks in advance and greetings!
More aboutsecondary partition accessible
Is "D" a secondary physical HDD or is "D" a partition on the same HDD as "C"?
Was one of the updates SP1? Also, what were you using "D" for (apps, storage, etc)?
I shall clarify
D is a logical one, so same HDD as C. None of the updates included SP1. D was used for storage and also for My Documents (that new Library thingy in Windows 7)
