Windows 7: C & G Drives are hidden

06 Aug 2012   #1

C & G Drives are hidden

Hello everyone,

Both C & G Drives are hidden when I navigate to computer on Windows 7.
Remember - this is a case of hidden. Not missing or corrupted. I right clicked computer -> manage -> storage -> disk management and they are both there. I was able to open both up fine. So, the question is how do I get them showing again in the normal computer window? I have restarted the computer and to be honest, I have no clue what else I can do. There is, however, two "Devices with Removable Storage" remaining under computer. These are: DVD RW Drive & BD-ROM Drive.

I have scanned the computer with Norton360, Malwarebytes and TDSSKiller with nothing coming up. So I'm going to assume its most likely not a virus, either. Does anyone else have any ideas? I start an external course really soon, so it is important to have this fixed asap. Preferably without having to do a complete reinstall.

It appears to be fixed. I didn't change or do anything, which is weird.
But I will mark this thread as solved.
