Hello , I have 2 hdds, one is cuted into two partitions "c" and "e" and second hdd is "d" (dvd-rom is "f")
So... on "c" i have instaled Win XP, on "d" i have Windows 7 and "e" is storage which i can not acces from Windows 7.

Hello blazone and welcome to SevenForums!

Go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management.

On the left pane , open Disk Management.

You will see in the list a partition without a drive letter. Right click on it, choose "Change drive letters and paths" and press ADD to add a letter to the partition.

Then you can see it fine.

Hope it helps

Well, i have done it like you wrote it but when i try to open it...:

"E:\ is not accesible.
The file or directory is corrupted or unreadable."

But i know that it is all right...

Hello wan3350,

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Are you saying that after closing the disk management console and rebooting the computer, you still can't complete the operation?

yy, i have exactly that problem...
disk is all right but win 7 is showing it as bad...
i have xp on first hdd so it is not very bad, but if i want something from "e" i must relog from Windows 7 to xp, copy that thing into Windows 7 system disk and relog back to Windows 7
a little f...ed

oh btw... in disk manager that "bad" disk allready has its name (letter) so i can not change it...
i think...
the only solution is format but that's the last option

this is what is in disk management:
