After posting up a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map and listings with all columns showing, using Snipping Tool in Start menu:

Burn to CD free Partition Wizard bootable CD, boot PW CD, highlight Windows 7 HD, from Wizards tab run Partition Recovery Wizard to see what it finds.

Not those, disk management.


In the Windows start menu right click computer and click manage, in the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens click disk management and post a maximized snip of that.

Hey dj,

Can you actually "click" on Disk Management, then take the screenshot? It's not actually showing Disk Management.

But from what I can see, you have two partitions NAMED E and F, but they don't actually have drive letters.

Perfect. Dj, can you right-click the "E" partition and does it have an option to "Change drive letters and paths"? If so, use that wizard to change the drive letter to E. Currently, it does not have a drive letter assigned (and neither does F, but you will have to unplug that external drive that is currently using F: to be able to assign your partition F.
