Windows 7: Lost access to hard drives except Virtual HD

20 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Lost access to hard drives except Virtual HD

I used to have access to all the HDDs on the machine. Was having getting trouble to get sound working. Uninstalled Integration Features and then re-installed.

Now I can no longer "see" any drives except the virtual C drive.

Doesn't help much to run apps in the XPMode if I can't access any files!!

EDIT: Found them - you need to enable Integration Features after -re-installing.

A question about Virtual Hard Drives????
Hi, I plan to create a VHD or virtual hard drive inside my alternate disk partition (D:). Let's say, I make a 15GB VHD, can I really boot an operating system from it??? Or is it possible to keep a system image backup in it that I can then make a recovery from in case my system fails????
