Minitool partition wizard made my D partitioned drive Disappear

I downloaded and used Minitool partition wizard to increase the space on my C/System partitioned drive.
i shrunk drive D in order to get the un-allocated space, but in doing so the drive disappeared and application with shortcuts too it wont work, yet i can see the drive in the list of Minitool Wizard, but my computer isn't picking it up or showing that is accessible or visible.
I have so far tried
and expanding the D drive
Aligning
Renaming the drive
Setting it to hidden then un-hide it
the files are all there but i just cant seem to get the drive to show
any help please?

How do you know the files are there if you can't access the partition? Can you Explore it in Disk Mgmt?

Does the partition have a drive letter? If not assign one in Disk Mgmt: Drive Letter - Add, Change, or Remove in Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums

When doing Resizing operations which can't be safely handled by Disk Mgmt, you should use the boot disk of Partition Wizard which has never failed in thousands of partitioning operations we've helped with here, while all others and even the PW Windows version can and will fail because they depend upon RAM holding the information at reboot.

To help us help you better please post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image and tell us exactly what is on each partition and where it was before you did the resizing from Windows.

Try right clicking Games in PW to give it a Drive letter.

I asked you exactly what you moved, where it was before.

Is this where you want these partitions?

In the future use Disk Mgmt for Extending to the left, and PW Boot Disk for any other extending using How to extend partition easily with Partition Wizard - video help which is a cool new feature that lets you borrow or give space to/from any partition whether they are adjacent or not, Logical or Primary.

Do you wish to make any other changes now while we are here to help you get it the way you want?
