I use a different drive for backing up and now it will not show up.

I see my C drive, my usb drive and my CD drive but not my other hard drive.

what kind of interface does it use?
have you checked disk management and made sure it has been assigned a drive letter?
does it show up in bios?
what OS are you running?

I don't know what that is


have you checked disk management and made sure it has been assigned a drive letter?


I was using it and now it is not there, I have C, F, G and H, so I don't show D and E because it was partitioned


does it show up in bios?

How do I check that


what OS are you running?

Window XP sp2

ok, check disk managment to make sure windows sees the disk:

Click START > RIGHT click "My Computer" > click "Manage" > on the left click disk management

Now, on the bottom right look for your disk, if it does not have a drive letter assigned you need to RIGHT click on your disk in the area I have circled, then click "change drive letter and paths"

then choose "assign the following drive letter" and pick one, click OK and close it all out and see if your drive shows up now.
