Yeah, thanks Brink.... That's the part I was a little unsure about. I appreciate the confirmation

Ruined hard drive?

I was getting increasingly frustrated with problems of crashing following a fresh install of Windows 7.

Subsequently I've done a lot of reading and used DISKPART to perform format of a hard drive.

When I did a clean all. It was taking so long I hit Ctrl C but nothing seemed to happen. In the end I forced a shutdown and the hard drive no longer appears.

Is there a way to recover it?

Hello Rhothgar,

Yeah, it's not a good idea to interrupt a clean all command like that.

Do you see the drive listed in Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc)?

Resolved thankfully by using another drive as master and accessing disk management. It must have reset it somewhere.
