I couldn't find logical driver F from windows explore. I have one hard driver which I splited it to 4 logical drivers (C, D, E, F). I use win2k pro operating system.
I checked computer management and I found driver F but it didn't show driver letter F. I did change driver letter and path but it would not work.

Any solution?

Thanks.

Do you see the F: partition but not the letter ?
Is it formatted ?
Is the option hidden set for this drive in Computer Management ?
May be you use Partition Magic and this partition is set to Hidden.

Is it possible to come up with 4 logical drive. If i am not msitaken you can have only four partition, which inclusive of a single primary and 3 logical partition.

F would be the third logical partition because there are only 4 partitions and C is obviously the Primary partition.

Windows 2000 will only permit 4 physical partitions with one, the last, having a logical drive. You cannot have 1 physical partition and then 3 logical drives. There is no such thing as a logical partition.

You will need to remove all of the partitions you have and create 3 physical partitions and then use the 4th as a logical drive. Then do a new install of Windows 2000. The only possible way around this is to use Partition Magic to re-do the partitions.
