Hi varunsoni and welcome,

Are you talking about the drives not showing in the tree on the left? Could you please post a screen print.

A couple of tests
1. Type in the drive letter followed by a colon e.g. D: in the address bar, does the drive open?
2. If not, please open the diskmgmt.msc (by typing it into SEARCH or RUN followed by ENTER. Can you see the Drives here?
