Windows 7: Unable to access a partition

30 Jan 2019   #1

Windows 7 32 bit
Unable to access a partition

I have a hard drive with 2 partitions. One has an old XP system & it boots up fine. The 2nd partition (G) is data. When I view the Disk Mgr the (G) partition is Type ID (Logical). When I view the folder (E) nothing shows. Does the drive Type ID need to be changed or are permissions an issue or are the contents of the folder hidden?

What steps should I take to access the (E) folder? I hope the jpg pics in the .zip file are discernible.

Hi J,
- Next time you want to show a image, just use the paper clip, browse to the image and upload.
- The Low formatted type (primary or logical) doesn't matter.
- Was the E folder on G: created under Win XP?
