    Hi all.

    Recently I installed Ubuntu Linux on a partition on my secondary hard drive (it's a worthwhile education, I'll give it that). Since then, when in Windows, the remaining space, used for games, alternates between being accessible and being unaccessible. What's the go?

    For example, when I go in My Computer and try to open D: drive this is the message i receive:

    D:\ is not accessible

    The parameter is incorrect

    Thank you in advance.

    Just to let you all know, I'm in Linux now, checking the hard drive. It recognises the first partition as being NTFS formatted, and the partitions are correct, which points or at least indicates the problem as being with Windows.

    I think I've come up with something...

    It seems that after I leave Linux and go back to Windows, D: is accessible. Until then, it doesn't let me.

    Is there a more permanent solution?

    I guess there isn't a solution at this point...not in this thread. I'll change my tactics. Thanks for your consideration in any case.
