    D drive missing in System Restore


    System restore does not show D: drive after restoring an image, it does show in File Explorer and Disk Management. Ran SFC /scannow and no error found. System restore did show C: missing and that was fixed by disabling system restore for that item. I have checked BIOS and there isn't any settings for the drive other than the start up position.

    Upgraded from windows 8.1 to 10 now D drive missing

    Hello,

    Upon upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 my D drive is no longer listed under my PC. I tried a search and cannot find it nor can I do a system restore as that requires the D Drive. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  3. Missing D: drive

    At first the D: drive only had ~35 Mb of 495Mb available space for a 3TB disk.

    Did System restore and D: drive went missing. I want to save the data on the drive.

    How can I get the drive back and save its data?
