    I have a desktop PC that has two hard drives, C: and D:. I installed
    Windows 2000 in drive c: and then Windows server 2003 in drive d:.
    When I boot up the system with Windows 2003 selected in the
    multibooting menu, both hard drives are recognized and can be
    accessed. But with Windows 2000, D: drive icon shows up in the My
    Computer window, but when I double click it, an error occurs saying
    "the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

    I don't know why the drive is said to be corrupted only with one
    operating system, not the other.

    FYI, I installed Windows 2000 first and then 2003. Even after
    installing 2003, I was able to access both C: and D: with no problem.
    Then a few days later, I started having this problem with D:. By the
    way, D: is Western Digital 250gb IDE hard disk.

    Any idea why this happens and how I can fix this?
