The drive or network connection that the shortcut 'shortcut to my shared Folder.ink' refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network recource is available, and then try again.

thats the message i get when i try to open my shared folder.


i know in my computer my D: drive is missing too. which is where the shared folder is located

Hi Sitalee...

The missing drive would appear to be the problem. Right click on "My Computer" and choose "Manage". In the left pane, double click on "Storage" then click on "Disk Management". Give it a moment to load the information...is the D: drive shown in the right pane? If so, what is the information given for this drive?

ok thats the problem... your D: drive was either deleted, or sometimes this happens because the voltages on a hard drive tend to mess up the hard drives in your case it deleted your D: drive... meaning all the data that was on the D: drive is now gone

And when it's there, the shortcut to the folder works, right?

Had you done anything inside the case just prior to the drive starting to wink in and out of existance? Install any new hardware?

Boot into the BIOS Setup and see if the drive is shown in there and if so, how it is set to detect. It needs to be set to automatically detect...Auto

turn on your pc, while starting up, at the bottom of the screen you will see press __ key to enter set up. just press the key it askes you to press.
if not ......... well it depends, all pc's have different ways to acces the bios but try presing the DELET, F2, F1, F11, F12 buttons.... and another thing, sometimes you have to be really quick at doing so other wise the pc will just start normal. if this happens, just reboot the pc and once again press those keys until you are through
