Did a clean install yesterday of XP as computer kept freezing. After the install my slave drive (F:) is not showing. Instead it is showing on my computer as removable disk. How do I get it back as my slave hard drive?
Try right clicking on my computer and then click on "manage" and then on the left side click on "disk management" and then see if you can do anything there or for that matter see if it is still an removable device.. what kind of devise is it tho.. is it an ext?
I was obviously too hasty as the first suggestion worked after I had shut down completely and waited a while before starting XP again. Now slave disk is up and running. The only problem is every time I start up I get "checking file on disk F", I let it run completely and it comes up with no errors found, but still does it again the next time I start up the PC. Any suggestions please.
