I am running Windows XP SP3.

I tried to install Universal Netboot Installer(UNetBootin) so I can run Linux too.
The installation of Unbuntu linux failed and I had to uninstall UNetBootin too.

But after that my hard disk drive icon is missing:

Only C: drive icon is missing. This is where linux files were copied and later deleted.


How can I recover it back?

Thank you for your help in advance :thumbsup:

I might also run a manufacturer's diagnostic on the C: drive, just to be safe.

I temporarily solved the problem by putting an autorun.inf file on C: drive, as mentioned on the link given by hamluis. The contents of the file being:

[autorun]
icon=%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll,8

Icon has changed back to original. But I think thats not the proper way for solving the issue.

thanks for help hamluis
