Hi,

Go to run an type diskmgmt.msc then press enter.
Does the f partition show under Volume?

Look at the Event Viewer for any errors at the time of the restore.
To do so go to Start - Run and type eventvwr.msc and press enter.
If there are any found post the EventID and Source here.

Hi,

Did you run diskmgmt.msc as suggested earlier?

Here is a description of the event you are receiving. I don't think
this anything to do with the missing drive.

Event ID: 1003 and Event ID: 1015 are added to the Application log
every time that you restart Windows XP Service Pack 2:

They are two different utilities. Event viewer and Disk management.

So that I understand you correctly, the F:\ drive shows the capacity
to be empty in Disk Management and C:\ is fine.

Open System Restore and select "undo my last restoration" and finish
the wizard.
After the system reboots run diskmgmt.msc and recheck the F:\ drive
capacity and let me know what you find.

i get a promt that says changes made to drive F:/ after this point cannot be
reversed because the dive was either excluded from system restore monitoring
or was turned off or removed.

this doesn`t sound good thx

I find it strange that SR would remove the data from this drive in the
first place. If this was a data drive SR should not have been
monitoring these files. SR only monitors system type files and not
data files such as .doc .xls .jpg etc. I would suggest using one of
these utility in hopes of recovering the lost data.
Restoration download and review - file undelete utility from SnapFiles
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/restoration.html

Look in Folder "File Recovery 3" for the next five applications
PC INSPECTOR File Recovery
http://www.pc-inspector.de/file_recovery/UK/welcome.htm

For more information on SR take a look here.
