I installed a second HD and formatted it and then Installed Norton Ghost on the C HD and backed up the primary© HD in mid April. I set up a schedule to automatically back up the C drive every week. I recently noticed that there was no E drive shown in the MY Computer, but in the hardware and driver listings it is shown, and that it is working normally. I cannot get the Ghost to back up as the E HD is not on the MY Computer. I have been looking all over to find a solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated

That's odd. Have you looked in the BIOS to see if it's showing there? Have you checked for loose cables? Have you gone to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management to see if it's listed there?

Highlite the disk in disk management, then click "Action", then click "Refresh".

If that doesn't make it visable in "MY Computer", return to disk management and click "scan"
