have you gone to ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS COMPUTER MANAGEMENT - DISK MANAGEMENT?

Did you install another drive recently?

Is the partition missing a full drive or a partiition on a drive?

Its a partition on a full drive (another partition on the same drive is showing and active)
No other drives installed recently.

Can you access the drive through the command prompt? Have you rebooted? Have you made sure no network drive is mapped to the driveletter you originally had for the disappeared drive?

Reboot the server.

Go into Disk Management and can you see the volume at all? If so, can you click ACTIVATE the drive?

In the RAID controller software (during boot POST, press F10 I think at the appropriate time to enter the RAID Controller program). Can you see the volumes and partitions? If so, then this lies in Windows. If not, then you could try to reload the config from the drives.

If this a Windows issue (ie, single logical volume on RAID and then split by Windows) then you may have a corrupt Volume Information Folder. This hopefully could be restored from a system state backup of the drive. However, you would need to get the drive back before you did you selective restore !!

Once you do get it back, run a chkdsk /f on the volume.

Hope this helps
