  1. I can no longer access my D: drive on my computer.


    I recently took my computer to Best Buy due to issues with me factory resetting it that I couldn't find a way to resolve myself. I just now opened it and downloaded something to find that in files under "This PC" I no longer had access to my D: drive. I am wondering if it is somehow just not showing up or if something happened without me knowing about it. I used to have about 1 terabyte of storage on my D drive and C drive combined, but now only have about 200 GBs. I am in need of more and am wondering if there is a way to fix this. Simpler question:Is there a way or reason that my D: drive is

    :)

  2. Cannot access D drive since upgrading to Windows 10.

    Hello Judy,



    Thank you for replying quickly with the status of the issue.



    Please reply to few more questions:


    • Is the D: drive located on the same hard disk or on different hard disk?

    • Did you have any important data saved on the
      D:
      drive?


    If the D: is saved on another hard disk and you are unable to access it, I suggest you to format the drive completely and check if the issue is resolved.



    To format the hard disk, follow the steps below:




    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Disk management option.

    • Right click on the D: drive and select
      Format option.

    • Wait for the formatting to complete and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the status of the issue for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

  3. D drive

    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.
