  1. Hi guys,

    noob here hope someone can help me..

    i physically took out my hard drive from my desktop computer and connected it to a HDD dock to transfer data to my laptop.

    when i put the hard drive back inside my desktop computer, C:\ and D:\ appears as a folder instead and cannot open when i double click. i have to right click and click open for it to work.

    so i did a format on D:\ because there's no data in it originally and now it's back to the original D:\ hard disk icon and works fine when i double click it. but i have alot of valuable info in C:\ that's too large to transfer anywhere else to format.

    does anyone know a way to restore the C:\ icon back to the original hard drive icon and double click works without wiping out the data?
