Can't see my external USB harddrive
Posted on 2011-02-18
I use several external USB harddrivs to backup my data. By copying my data to E: (drive letter for external USB harddrive) every Friday. The computer is running Windows 7 professional.
But I recently bought a new external USB hardrive (same brand, size, western digital elements portable 500GB USB 2.0 ) and this new drive doesn't appear in the windows explorer window as the other disks do. I can see the disk in Disk Management and it hasn't got a driver letter assigned to it self.
I don't want to assign a driver letter to the disk. I want Windows to do this for me. As it does for
my other disks.
