Specs: Windows XP, quad core 2 intel / 3gb
i have two internal hard drives. all of a sudden one didn't show up. i tried restoring. nothing happened. so i started in safe mode and it shows up. restarted normally and it is gone again.
it seems to only show up and have access to it in safe mode. any ideas?

✔ Best Answer
In Safe Mode, assign a different drive letter to that drive in Computer Management >> Disk Management, then restart Windows.

It worked!!! No freaking way!?!?
I had this happen months ago and asked numerous people why
or what I could do with no ideas or answers.
It made no sense to me why it would only show up in safe mode.
But I had all but given up and moved on.
I decided I would try to figure it out one more time.
Thanks again, your a lifesaver.
Well HDsaver to say the least. Haha
