I just installed another 428 mb hard disk in my computer. I have divided both drives in 2, thus I have disks c, d, e, and f. Everything works fine in dos but in Windows, explorer
doesn't show me drive e: I previously used Drivespace3 but
have now uncompressed my drives. Drivespace3 shows all four
drives but tells me that e: is hidden. How can I make that
drive visible again?

jussi,
  When you say "Drivespace3 shows all four drives but tells me that e: is hidden", what excatly does the message say. Or if not a message, in what way does it tell you that e: is hidden.
  We need a little more information here.
If it's hidden like system files are hidden, try
ATTRIB -S -R -H -A E:
