Partition confusion

Hello. I just recently did a fresh install from windows xp to windows 7 and I previously had a separate partition that I used for backing up stuff. After upgrading, I noticed that it doesn't show up under my computer but, it shows up under disk management. How can I regain access to that drive? Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about. Thanks

In the Disk Management snip, your Backup Drive does not have a letter. Assign it drive D: by right clicking on your Backup in Disk Management.
