Drive missing (D:, F:, G:) after the reboot (Windows 7 & PGP)
My new Dell laptop was installed with Windows 7 & PGP WDE in it. This was performed by my office team (by the infrastructure Team).
I did a shrink on the C: drive, and created new volumes (D, F, & G).
E: was already allocated to the DVD RW Drive.
Both diskmanagement and PGP Desktop was initially showing all the drives. After seeing everything OK, I distributed my entire data (both Official & Personal) across to all the volumes, including C, D, F, & G
The setup ran for 3 days without any problem
After some automatic windows updates I was asked to restart my laptop.
** Problem started here.
Now all the hard disk drives except C: is missing. (ie, D, F, & G).
When I go to disk management it shows only one volume C:
C: Simple Basic NTFS Healthy (System, Boot, Page File, Active Crash Dump, Primary Parition) 465.75 (Capacity) 465.75 (Free Space) 100% (% Free) No (Fault Tolerance) 0% (OverHead)
PGP Desktop also shows only C: as only parition available. Remaining paritions available earlier are gone now.
Windows explorer shows only C: as 171 GB Free of 233 GB. The entire space allocated for the other volumes are unusable now.
The data stored in (D, F, & G) was so important to me, so I did some googling & recoverened the entire files using TeskDisk utlity
I am happy that I got all the data stored in the missing volumes, but still unable to mount the remaining drives.
I am still doubtfull whether something else will happen and my remaining drives also will go disappear.
Any idea ???
