    I've got 2 hard drives. Both are hooked up SATA. One is a 200GB & the new
    one is 250GB. I split the first into 5 partitions (C:-G:), the 2nd into 3
    and mounted them as folders in drive D:. Now my problem is recovery
    software wont recognize that drive (because the folders are apparently seen
    as shortcuts to a drive that isn't assigned letters so it doesn't appear to
    exist). Windows & all programs see it just fine, but "PC Inspector File
    Recovery (v4)" wont see it (it sees the folders, sees the drive, but wont
    select it due to lack of drive letter).

    How can I "unmount" the drive & assign letters to it now? I'd rather not
    lose data on it & rather avoid backup (I've got allot of DVD+RWs if it is
    needed, but would rather avoid that option if I can just change the way its

    This is XP Pro with SP2 (licensed, not Corp version, so downloading a
    utility from MS isn't an issue).

    It's nice for an old person. It's like a game.
    It's frustrating.
    Suddenly, There's not half the files there used to be, And there's a
    milestone hanging over me The system crashed so suddenly.
    It doesn't take much, does it?
