As you can see Q is not specifically mentioned here,
though it does show that c has been partitioned in 3 parts...


FYI; mybook F = External harddrive connected via usb.
The external harddrive connected via airport does not show at all

airport drives aren't shown because it's accessed via network. You only see local drives.

I see you boot from recovery partition! Please assign a drive letter (Q for example) to it. Then try to access it using explorer. Just a test. Post results

Yes it was correct... but also fails

After deleting drive letter Q and a reboot: Enter elevated command prompt again

Code:
 
vssadmin list shadows
vssadmin list shadows
still waiting for output.
Did you delete drive letter Q or wasn't it assigned at all?

Now I had a closer look at your regedit output mounteddevices. Problem partition Q is not on same disk as C. Problem partition is on same physical disk as D! What is or was D (it's not shown anymore). Maybe it's the drive letter of airport physical disk if attached directly to laptop. test it please

Q isn't listed there so can not delete it.

when i assign a leter to RECOVERY i can indeed access it.
(IE it show up under "computer")

However, Q is also still listed under "computer", so Q & recovery are 2 different partions i guess?

Deassign that drive letter in disk management. Be sure it's gone! than reboot your machine and open explorer. Q still listed there???? If so, what happens if you doubleclick on it?

Q does not show up in disk management. only under "computer"
it has always been there. and i never could access it. so that situation has not changed
