My Windows XP was recently corrupted and my hard disk was password protected. In an effort to retrieve my old info I slaved my hard disk to a friends PC.
I changed the permissions on my old, slaved drive and all was well. I then installed a secondary 250 GB slave so I could backup the data on his 'D:' (primary slave) drive, which he promised to me after I was done.
Then, when I uninstalled my old drive, his primary slave was no longer present in 'My Computer'. I removed the new 250 GB drive, but his primary slave was still not visible.
I did a little research and found that I could reassign the drive letter to make it visible via the disk manager and reassigned the 'D:' designation. The drive is now visible, but it says that the disk is unformatted, which is obviously not true.
How can I rectify this without formatting the drive?
