Windows 7: Hard drive partition is not displayed !!!

Hard drive partition is not displayed !!!

Hello Folks,
Am not a tech savvy person.... However, I managed to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 without any issues.. I did a clean installation.

I have 2 hard disk drives.. the old one is around 80GBwith 2 partitions in it and shows up as below in Disk management:
39GB; Healthy (System, Active, Primary Partition)
35.5GB; healthy logical drive

2nd hard drive shows as follows in my Disk Management:
39GB; Healthy (Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)
48.8GB; healthy (Logical drive)
61GB; Healthy (logical drive)

I have Windows 7 installed on my 2nd hard drive 39GB partition.

Now the issue here is that the 39GB partition of my old hard drive (80GB) is not visible in My Computer and hence I cant make use of that space... It was working fine on Windows XP.....

Any suggestions here would be appreciated.

Thanks and Regards.

Hello Neopunk, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post back with a screenshot of your Disk Management window showing the full layout of your HDDs first? This will better help us to give you the proper advice.

Neopunk,

You should be able to just add a drive letter to that partition to have it show up in your My Computer" afterwards.
