    HELP!

    I have 2 hard drives in my system. I just re-formatted drive C due to some problems that I was having. I had a lot of my data from drive C backed up onto drive D.

    Now that I've re-formatted drive C, I can no longer access the data on drive D. When the system boots, it's detected both drives but it looks like the second drive wasn't assigned a drive letter.

    Is there ANY WAY that I can get the second drive back without losing my data???

    Thanks in advance!

    Jim
