After I cloned my HDD to my external hard drive (EHD?) using MiniTool Partition Wizard, I was not able to access it, only from Command Prompt with admin rights. After trying everything I decided for whatever reason to resize my external hard drive (MiniTool split it in 2 partitions, 1 unused, and I merged them), also using MiniTool Partition Wizard.

But now I'm not able to see the drive's contents at all. Instead it says E:\ is unavailable. I'm still able to see the drive in Minitool Partition Wizard and in Disk Management, but I'm not able to do anything in the second tool.

Is there any way I can mount my EHD again? I'm fine if I have to start over. If so, what do you recommend I do different next time?

  • Have you tried assigning a drive letter to it? – confetti Sep 11 '18 at 19:24

    I was not able to do this using Disk Management, but I havve now fixed it with Minitool Partition. Perhaps a command could've fixed this as well? It would be a nice extension to my answer for those who don't have the software. – Sheepolution Sep 11 '18 at 19:28

Using Minitool Partition Wizard I was able to mount the partition to a new letter.

  1. Right click on partition.

  2. Change letter.

I'm using version 10.2.3

I still have the access denied problem, but I will create a new question for that.


Actually, posting screenshots is much useful to analyze the issue. You may try using the Check File System feature or contact minitool's support center.
