Ok, Before I had a Hard Drive crash I had 2 Hard drives. The Primary died and I used the slaved as my Backup. However, due to Spyware issues I did not perform an ASR from this Backup. I then installed the new drive as my primary. After Windows XP was reloaded the slaved drive is not being assigned a drive letter.

Windows XP Device Manager contains the Slave Drive. The Disk Management sees the Volume as DesktopD but hasnt assigned a Drive letter, NTFS, Helathy(Active). I have options to convert to a Dynamic Disk or delete the partition. Obviously Id prefer not to do this.

Anyone have an idea how to resolve this without losing the information on the drive?

Unfortunatley the only choice I have is Delete partition or Help. All other selections on the menu are greyed out.

Western Digital diagnostics say that the drive is fine.
