Missing Drive letter

  1. Hi everyone, I have a problem with the Drive letter on one of my drives. I used PartitionMagic to merge two of my partitions together and after merging, it asked me if I wanted to use DriveMapper to remap all the moved contents from the old drive to the new drive so I chose yes and it did. Now I am missing a drive letter for one of my drives and I know it is there because when I open up PartitionMagic, I can see the Drive with an asterisk in front of it but then when I go to My Computer, I can't see it there.

    I was hoping that someone can help me out here.

    Right click my computer ansd select manage. This will allow you to get to disc management and from there you can select the partition and change the letter.
