A screenshot showing the drive visible in one window, but not in the other. For some reason I cannot see any of my other hard drives through Windows 8's explorer window. I can see them in disk management, and opening them from there works. They are also visible in file-related dialogs.

How can I fix this? I have already tried restarting the explorer process.
