  1. My D Drive is Missing


    So my d drive has been missing for a long time now, I have ignored it for a while but now I need to delete something that was originally stored in the d drive, but its now missing along with it. The only trace of the drive is this symbol that is in my quick access in file explorer. Clicking on it does nothing, and everywhere else like disk management, steam, storage sense etc acts as if it doesn't exist. I tried to look and see if it was a unallocated partition and it doesn't seem to be there. The weirdest thing to me is that for a brief moment today when I went to install Skyrim to my new ext

  2. 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.
    • 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.
