XP Upgrade 2nd hard drive cannot be accessed

  1. I have two hard drives on my system, one is partitioned as the C & D drive, the other was partitioned as my F drive.
    I have just run a window XP upgrade. Before the upgrade all drives were accessible. After the upgrade I am able to acces the C&D partitions, but my F drive no longer appears. The system does recognise ths drive in disk manager (but reports the whole drive as unassigned).

    Please can someone let me knwo how I can access my F drive.

    Thanks :rolleyes:

    I was also on Xp Pro. I did an upgrade to try overcome a network issue I am having, see other posts on the site.

    Any ideas

    Mic asked "From what did you Upgrade?"
    -Upgrade means - from one O/S to another O/S eg.XP Home to XP Pro
    -Update means - Same O/S revision to same O/S eg. XPpro to XP pro ser pack 2
    You will get better help if you are more specific.
