I partitioned my separate G: and F: drives in preparation for copying the F: drive onto the G: drive (still keeping the F: drive letter -both G: and F: will be on the G: drive to keep current program paths to the F: drive working). Windows Explorer does not show either of the newly partitioned logical drives - X: or Z: Disk Director and XP's disk manager both show the two new drives. Neither X: or Z: is listed as active in disk manager. How do I get Windows Explorer to recognize the new drives? I don't want to combine the two until I'm sure the new partitions on them are working properly. Thanks in advance for any help provided. I appreciate the professionalism of this forum.
