    D drive disappeared after Win 10 update


    My D drive no longer appears at File Explorer, My PC; or at Disk Management. Before this problem I am sure D drive was present at File Explorer, My PC; and at Disk Management. The problem started happening a few days ago around the time of the latest Windows 10 update, "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1903". I can not say for sure that the D drive disappeared after the update, but I think it is very likely. I checked Event Log to verify this, but it is filled to the maximum by warnings and errors, generated every 5 seconds, regarding the D drive problem, and does not extend back in time to the update.

    The first sign of a problem was pop up messages in the lower right corner of my screen which I did not understand, so I deleted them. I do not recall what these messages said, something about something being disconnected. Then I realized my D drive had disappeared. Rescan Disk has no effect. My D drive is a large partition, about 2/3 of the total hard disk. No system Restore Points appear, they are erased by every update I believe. I would prefer to avoid downloading a third party application if possible.

    Thanks for any help.

    :)

    Hi,

    Based on the details you have provided us, it appears that there might be some corrupted contents on the said partition. We can also consider that this is caused by a virus.

    For us to check if a certain virus is hiding your files, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Type Command prompt in the search bar.
    • Type-in the following command:

      attrib -h -r -s /s /d D:\*.*
    • Press Enter to execute the command.

    If you think that there is nothing important stored in it, then we suggest that you reformat your D drive so that you can use the free space for important files.

    You can follow the steps below to start with the process:

    • Click on the File Explorer.
    • Select This PC.
    • Right-click on your D drive, then click on Format.
    • Follow the on-screen process to finish formatting the partition.

    Let us know how it goes so that we can further assist you.
