Windows 7: Lost Hard Drive.

20 Sep 2019   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Lost Hard Drive.

I had to take my PC back to the tech shop to have my Windows 7 Home Professional reinstalled after they screwed-up my request by installing some other Windows 7 OPS. When I got my PC back yesterday, I was missing a hard drive and now it is nowhere to be found. May someone have some good advice to offer to help me find it?

What have you lost did you have 2 drive's or the one partitions if it's a drive missing open the case see if it's there if it was one drive they may have removed partitions and made a big drive

Well now, I'm confused..... Windows Home and Windows Pro are TWO totally different versions of Windows.

So are you physically missing a hard drive, or are you just one partition short of what you had earlier?
Big difference!

And why are you here and not at that PC shop trying to find out where your drive went?
