Second hard drive map letter

Since I bought my computer in January the second hard drive where my data is stored has been "D". today I noticed when I opened "my computer" d was assigned to a thumb drive i had inserted and my data appeared to be gone. I shut down and restarted my computer only to find that my data was there but is now named "G". This screws up several programs that look to "D" for data. Please help.

Open disk management

Find what ever is assigned drive D. change the drive letter to the next available drive letter (H: is my guess)

then change G: to D:

reboot, life should be good

(You can change the drive letters under the properties of a drive.)

If this is xp- you can manually force the drive letter assignment in computer management under disk management.
right click the my computer icon, go to management. In there go to disk management. In there you will see the drives and the drive letters. Right click on the drive, and go to change drive letter and paths. Should be pretty simple from there. By default it seems that any new drives are assigned the next available letter, all the way up to Z- but you can specify the drive letter any way you like.

Solid red light. Does not show up on my computer.


Dose it show up as drive letter E:/ underdevice manager in disk drives?(Check out:right clicking my computer icon onyour desktop,select disk manager)
If so,try right clicking on my computer and selecting map network drive.(You'llget the same results by right clicking on network neighborhood icon on yourdesktop and selecting map network drive.)This is the method many people use toassign a drive name (i.e.,letter) to a drive.
How about asking you to format it before you can use it?Then you can recover data from hard drive with datarecovery software like Tenorshare Data Recovery.It can recover data afterdeeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data.
