Hello from a noob! Here is my situation. My computer has 2 hdd. HD1 is the main drive (36gig Raptor) with Windows XP Pro installed on it. HD2 is a 200gig Seagate used a data storeage only (pictures, music, etc...). Both are SATA drives. I had to re-install Windows and now the 2nd HD does not show up in Windows Explorer. It does show up in the bios, disk management and device manager. In disk management I have tried to assign it a drive letter, but that is not an option. Do I need to change it from a Basic disk to a Dynamic disk to get it to appear and show all of its data? I really do need to get at the data on that drive, or else I'm dead meat! Thanks in advance for any and all help!
