You have to format it.

If it is free space you need to format as Zomby88 suggested. Just right-click the partition and choose Quick Format.

If it is unallocated space, you need to create a new partition then give it a quick format.

thank you guys for reply...

My missing partition wasn't empty, there is circa 110gb of data.
When I formated it, I lose that data, right?
Another idea?

As it is unallocated space you can try using Easeus Partition Master to recover the partition and its data.

Partition Recovery from Unallocated Space, Recover Unallocated Partition.

It did the job for me.
