I had partitioned my computer with two partitions, C: and D:, with D: used as recovery. All was fine until 5 months later, when my laptop (Samsung RV511 running Windows 7 Home Basic) crashed (I assume, because of a virus). I recovered it using my backups. However my D: drive is not showing up in Windows Explorer.
In Disk Management, C: drive (which is used as the System Partition) is showing, and then next to it is "free space" that I suspect was supposed to be the D: partition. When I right-click and create a new volume, it doesn't complete successfully because it says my operating system does not support dynamic disks. Please help. I want to recover this space; it's a good 100GB.
