Ultimately what I want to do is build a system on this and use it to boot from, but right now all I want is to "see" the drive and format At purchase it was partitioned as one large 232GB partion, which WinXP Pro would not recognize. You have saved my day!!!! Strange one for me could not figure out where that drive was hidden.
For example: 1: right-click the partition you want below. 2: choose-change drive letter and paths 3: now instead of choosing the drive letter in the list and saying change, click add you need to boot off of another harddrive or boot off of a cd (XP or WINDOWS 7 cd to format and then install the new operating system.) if you Arne This method only works if the files were not encrypted. December 29, 2008 JimF I took a Hitachi 40 gb 2.5 inch drive from my wife's old laptop (Win 2000) and put it in an external USB drive case.
This time, it would not mount. I went through the mess of trying to open the System Volume Information folder and no such luck. You've save me a lot of time. 5* luke No go! im using winxp profesional sp2 with disable simple file sharing anyone can help??
i've taken ownership. Windows Xp Once file sharing is enabled, begin this procedure again. February 13, 2009 pete Hi Thanks for the tip; not finding my flash drive almost drove me to drink! I've moved away from MS to Linux (I've also moved out of IT as a job) and so i'm not so up todate with MS OS'es as i would otherwise be.
Thank you so much! jangadbutta But http://www.deletelongfile.com is stolen version of Path Too Long Utility from http://www.pathtoolong.com. You know they loaded the pavillion 9905 with a secret partition so it will recover it self. It is also possible to add a drive letter or mount point when windows hasn't done so for you.

This solved my problem. March 29, 2008 John Doe Your article solved my frustrating problem on my work computer. January 2, 2009 nathan I'm having an issue with a Lexar USB device. http://fhsla.net/how-to/how-to-free-up-disk-space-on-mac.html I found my usb device not working, right click then click enable.
I think I solved my problem. I as well do not have a "Security" tab, but your solution worked for me. Some of the files on a back-up drive was somehow avoiding me with an "Access Denied" even though I was logged in as the Administrator.
On the plus side, it is a well written step by step guide to what it explains…and…it's got a date stamp at the end…pheew!…finally a site that doesn't keep us wondering I don't believe any user should have to open up disk managment to change the drive letter of a USB device just because the OS is incapable of checking to see Under manager setup the drive does not appear…. It's called What's my computer doing?, and I mentioned it in a similar answer a year ago (Why is my computer whirring?).
But suprisingly after removal and re-insertion of just that drive it does not get the free drive letter, XP persists with the previously allocated letter so it remians lost for ever! Try using Explorer to browse C:\System Volume Information which is a folder protected by the operating system using NTFS security permissions.7. The answer says that "Windows renamed the drive to a letter that is already in use." I had not considered that Windows was as dumb as that. http://fhsla.net/how-to/how-to-fix-format-disk-error-without-formatting.html But pressing the continue button seemed to result in no action.
Regards Sverrir December 7, 2007 Jim hey there,, having same problem with drive E missing in windows XP. Anyone have a fix for this? Type: fltmc attach AccessGainDriver c: - this will attach the AccessGain MiniFilter driver to your C: drive.6. Type your user name just for yourself.
Why in the Hell didn't include XP Home in it's fixes I'll never know. EXCELLENT. Open a command prompt2.
