Having resolved my SFC problem, I fitted a new hard drive. This was the first one of two. I copied everything to the new drive with Acronis, but now Windows Explorer will not see the second drive. On loading, the bios sees the 2 drives as master and slave, as does Partition Magic. It also shows if I go to Control Panel/admin tools/disk management. But if I go to Start/programs/accessories/system information it does not show. I need to get some files from the second drive, any suggestions as to how I can get it to show in W Explorer. Running W XP, and I am unable to do a restore as all of the points are missing
I have resolved my problem. By going to control panel/admin tools/disk management. I noted that the first drive with two partitions was listed as drive c & d but the second was shown as Computer 2 3 & 4. I changed them to letters e f & g and that has solved the problem. Thanks to all for your suggestions.
