I have an Arbico PC running windows 8.1 (64bit) which used to have two internal hard drives and one external HD for backup. The configuration for these drives was Disc 1: divided into two partitions C and D with windows on the C partition and D was for . Disc 2: was for data only and designated E. External drive is F.

I then decided to install an SSD drive for windows and program files and this was designated as C and the whole of disc 1 was cleared of partitions and desinated for . The remaining drive Disc2 remained the same for data and designated as E.

This has all worked fine save for the Windows 8.1 back up system not recognising drive D and therefore not backing it up in file history. Instead it shows the following: $OF It backs up C and E fine.

Can you help?
