I take it you mean it doesn't show in Explorer?

When you go to diskmanagement, do you see it there?

Probably it doesn't have a driveletter under Windows 7, so you'll have to add it.

If you don't know how, post back.

Thanks for the reply. I completely restored the windows 7 partition from an earlier backup and I got my external partition back again. The trouble started when I used Personalisation - change the theme. Then I lost my partition. Everything is OK now thanks
