Windows 7: Secondary partition created doesn't show under My Comp

Secondary partition created doesn't show under My Comp

OK, my problem is the following:

When I was installing Windows 7 I partitioned my hard drive into two parts. The first one I allocated 20GB of free space for Windows to use. The second one I crated, was allocated 230 something GB for music, software, etc. The problem is that when I started my computer for the first time only the first one (20GB) was showing under My computer. The second one (230GB) wasn't there as a separate label. How do I make this work? Please help. Thank you in advance.

Welcome!

That seems pretty straightforward. Type diskmgmt.msc into the start menu and press enter.

Right-click on the "hidden" partition and select Assign drive letter and paths. Then give that drive a letter!

Good luck,
