    Whilst trying to reformat one hard drive i didnt realise that an external hardrive was still connected. Noticing a second harddrive on the screen i just thought that xp was being weird. and like an idiot i deleted the partiton before realising. Now the drive dosnt show in my computer.

    What steps can i take to make this drive accessible again?

    thanks for your time

    In Disk Management, RIght click on the drive and set a partition and format it . . this will erase all data so be sure that is ok!

    Right click on My Computer . . select Manage . . Disc Management
