I created an extended partition and a logical volume therein using DISKPART and formatted (NTFS, quick). But the logical volume (E:) is not showing in explorer (My Computer). I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. enter image description here enter image description here

Is there anything wrong? Am I missing something?

Are you using any external drives which are also mapped to the letter E: ? –  Hennes Dec 1 '12 at 16:15
Not sure, but that could be possible. What should be my approach, then? –  abhisek Dec 1 '12 at 16:59
Try giving it another driver letter and see if it shows up in explorer. (XP did have that problem, but you have win7, so this is just a guess) –  Hennes Dec 1 '12 at 17:12
Tried from F: to Z:. Not working. Please help! –  abhisek Dec 2 '12 at 10:00
