All we did was asked youu to post a shot of disk management and you couldn`t even do it, it takes 10 seconds.

Why did you even bother asking for help if you`re not gonna cooperate, Have a Good Day.

Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image


This will allow the helping members to better understand this disk management thing you have.
I have had a week of hell starting with my antivirus stop working. I worked with tech support for a week, I finally had to by my choice install Win7 fresh after several years of never having a problem.

I am stressed big time so forgive me if I don't care what you think about how I posted my hard drive images. I did the best I could without spending hours reading the forum to find out the best way. I am sure it is but I did it the best I could. SORRY I TROUBLED YOU

Wow. For what ever your reasons, you sure do have a lot of partitions and drive letter assignments!
  1. Drive letters can be assigned to mass storage devices/volumes (hard disk, USB drives, CD/ROM) and mapped network drives
  2. Drive letter assignments only appear when the associated mass storage device is connected and powered on (so if you've inserted a USB flash and removed it or a hard drive failed, its drive letter would stop appearing. The drive letter would still be assigned - but not appearing)
Disk Management won't show letter assignments for disconnected devices. For your case, suggest you download and run DriveLetterView.
> Click Ctl-A to select all items in the display
> Ctl-S to save selected items
> Next, be sure to change the Save As type pull down menu to Tab Delimited Text (.txt) before you save the file!
Then attach the text file

Here;s a sample from my machine. Note letters I and J are assigned but won't appear because the device it was assigned is not currently connected
/* EDIT */
Though note: Please provide a tab delimited text per my request. Not a screen shot as I did for my example
