I have a situation where only one of the partitions on my external HD, which I use for backup is being 'seen' by my computer.

The drive is split into 2 partitions - 20GB allocated to recovery files and 911Gb allocated to backup; only the recovery potion is visible. If I connect the HD up to my laptop, both partitions can be seen.
I'm running Win7 on both m/c's.

Any ideas please?
