I recently removed a hard drive from my notebook and put it into a external case. Since I have done that, I can no longer see the second partition in the hard drive when connected to the USB.

Thanks in advance

Go to disk management and assign it a letter.

Here are the instructions in case you do not know how to do that (ah-hem daship. :) )

Once you have opened Computer Management, look to the far left and you'll see a list click on "Disk Management" In the middle center you'll see the partitions. Look for the one without a letter and then right click it. Select "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."

I suggest to check it first with third party software to check if it is ok - like tuneup utilities or norton tools. The partition might be corrupted.
