Drive letters show up in windows explorer but not in disk manager

    We failed to plug in the external hard drive for a scheduled incremental
    backup using Norton Ghost. This created a phantom partition with a drive
    letter G:. Following Symantec's instructions, I went to disk manager and
    deleted the partition. Since doing so, the drive letters for my operating
    system (C:) and data disks (D:) do not show up in disk manager but do show up
    correctly in windows explorer when I open "My Computer". Since this
    happened, I have not been able to schedule automatic backups because Symantec
    shows the drives are hidden. This is my wife's computer she uses in her CPA
    practice and there is a lot of specialty software installed. Reinstalling
    Windows would wipe out too much and the preinstalled OS that came with the
    computer will not allow a repair install. Any Ideas?

    My first idea would be to post to a relevant group, such as the general
    group of what ever version of Windows your using, as your question is not
    related to Media Center.

    Will do that. Came to the group because I was led there as I have Media
    Center 2002 version of XP installed.

    I assumed as much, but many more people frequent the general groups than
    this one, so your likely to get a faster answer and more replies than here.
