Hi, 

 

I wanted to make a guest users account and experimented with this. I had a second account. On my administrator account, I noticed that the computer did not see my D disk anymore. I removed the second account but now I still do not see my D disk anymore. How do I get it back?

(Sorry for bad english)

 

 

Thanks in advance

Perhaps I'm missing something here, but viewing the D: drive isn't something that you should be able to do in you user account.  To view this drive you would either need to open This PC or the Disk Management.

what is the D drive?, a DVD unit, another hard drive, a partition?

 

in Win10, bring up File Explorer, in the left column, right click on some empty space, and select Show all Folders.

does that make a difference?


Instead of reading this, why not do a backup of your PC.

You won't regret it.

Sorry I think what i meant was lost in translation.

My D Disk is my hard drive. 

 

Dropbear: no, that doesn't help. 

 

In the other users account i could use it in de file explorer menu. But after i removed it. I don't see it in my administrators account in the file explorer. 

 

I hope this can help you.

Thanks in advance

Press the windows key windows-key.png  and the X key to open the Windows Mobility Center menu.

 

When the menu opens select Disk Management.

 

Please either make a screen shot or use the snipping tool to create an image of the Disk Management.

 

How to make a screenshot and post it in your topic

1. Download and run A Thousand Words .

2. Follow the wizard to capture a screenshot.

3. Use the built-in editor to resize, edit, or re-capture your screen shot.

4. Your screen shot will be saved to your desktop when you finish the wizard.

You can post the screenshot in your next post as an attachment.

Just below the area where you write text in a post there is the Post button, to the right of this is More Reply Options.

When you click on More Relpy Options you will see Attach Files and Browse, click on Browse, this will open Pictures on your computer, click on the image you want to post, then click on Attach This File, then Add Reply.

Don't forget you can use Windows built in screenshot tool as well.

 

Open your Disk Management window and then hold down the Windows Key on your keyboard (the one with the little flag on it) and tap the PrtScn (printscreen) key once.

 

Your screen will dim very briefly and if you look in Pictures there is a folder called screenshots where it will have been automagically saved for you,

I hope this can help you. 

Do I need to change the language? 

It is maybe easier.

 

Thanks a lot

If you go to the previous post you will see that I not only suggested this as well, I also provided instructions for its use.

I normally have a C drive ( SSD) and a D hard drive. I can't see the D drive in File explorer. 

How can i see it again and save things?

Is the D: secondary drive detected in your BIOS/UEFI?

You will need to boot into the BIOS.  This usually is accomplished by tapping one of the F keys during the startup.  If this isn't a F key it usually would it should be either Esc or Delete.

 

If you post the make and model of this computer I will find which key you need to use.

When you see the Lenovo logo start tapping the F2 key to open the BIOS/UEFI.
