Thread: I Lost It

  1. #1
    Hi to all. I found a fantastic program called "Drive Scrubber" So having a second hard drive for a year and filling it with all sorts of stuff that I never use, I used Drive Scrubber to clean it.Drive scrubber is on a floppy disc and is so easy to use that you won't believe it. Anyway now I cannot find my second hard drive and I remember that I read somewhere that you have to format or do something else before it will appear again. So please tell me in simple language how to do it!
    I have Windows XP Prof.
    Thank you all and have a good day
    Cheerio. gotcha

    The drive isn't showing up in 'My Computer' because it has no partition. Use Disk Management to create a partition then format it.

    In the Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Disk Management.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
