Open 'Notepad' and write following code.
Save file as 'autorun.inf'.
Copy/replace this file on all drives/partitions that are not opening on double-click.
Restart PC and now all drives should open with normal double-click.

I don't have recovery partition

follow this step and do it. God bless you

  • To create a partition from a new or newly formatted computer, make sure Windows is installed. Load any programs and drivers you would like to keep in case you need to back up to a previous version of your computer's settings.

  • 2

    Install your partition creation software; in this article we will use Norton Ghost. Before creating your partition, disable any anti virus and other scanning software.

  • 3

    Create your partition by going to your ms-dos prompt: from your Start menu, press "Run," and type "cmd" without quotations in the run dialog box. At the dos prompt, type "fdisk" without quotations, and choose option 1 (Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive). Set the partition size to 10 GB at press enter.

  • 4

    Open Norton Ghost and follow the instructions to create a recovery partition in the new partition you had just created. The process should take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the size of the files you are going to back up.

  • 5

    Restart your computer. When done, open Norton Ghost to verify that the Recovery Partition was created.

    How to unlock a partition on a flash drive

    Hidden partitions on hard drives and USB flash drives store files, recovery and utility software. Many personal computer manufacturers use a hidden partition for the recovery software and no longer ship software CDs. Some people use hidden partitions to store files, which contain sensitive, illegal or private data. Since most USB flash drives are marked with the drive , you can check for differences between this marking and the capacity reported for the drive. A Any significant disparity may indicate the presence of a hidden partition.

    Log on to the computer as an administrative user. Click the "Start" button. Select "Control Panel." Double-click the "Administrative Tools" icon. Open "Computer Management." Click on the "+" beside "Storage." Select "Disk Management." The hidden partitions do not have drive letter assignments and are shown in the "Disk 1" or "Disk 2" areas. The "Disk 0" area is usually used by your boot drive or the C:/ drive. A read-only partition on a flash drive may show up in the "CD-Rom" area. Step 4. Right-click on the hidden partition. Choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths." Click "Add." Select a drive letter to use. Click "OK." Click on the red "X" in the upper right corner of the "Computer Management" window to close it. Double-click on "My Computer" on the desktop. Double-click on the drive letter you selected in Step 4 to open the drive and view the files. Hope this helps.

    What is the password for the new kingston USB DT109?

    It is true that locking mobile storage devices, such as USB drives, with Imation Lock is an excellent way to protect your data.

    However, using Imation Lock with a Kingston USB drive can create problems.

    Learn how to unlock your Kingston USB drive so you can use it once again.

    Ensure that your Kingston USB drive has been removed from your computer's USB port.

    Start the Imation Lock software by double clicking the Imation Lock.

    Plug in the Kingston USB into a USB port immediately after the "Please Insert the Device or Run This Utility as Privileged User" message appears.

    Access your Kingston USB drive by clicking Start > Computer.

    Double click on the device.

    Start the Imation Lock software again by double clicking the Imation Lock.

    Disable the password protection by clicking the open lock icon.


    If you have password protected a USB drive or partition on your computer and have since forgotten the password, you will need to completely erase the drive.

    Erasing and reformatting the drive will remove any password protection, software and data on the drive preventing you from accessing the drive.

    The process is simple using Window's Disk Management utility.

    Log into the computer as the administrator.

    Open the Windows Start menu, select "Run," type "Compmgmt.msc" and click "OK." In Windows Vista and Windows 7, simply type the command into the "Search" field.

    Select "Disk Management."

    Locate the password-protected drive.

    Right-click it and select "Delete." Confirm the action.

    The drive will be erased and become unallocated free space.

    Hope this helps.

    What's your problem?

    Hi Shel,
    On which partition is the Operating System installed?Drive D?
    Unless you re-install the Operating System again,Am sorry you can't change the size of the partitions.
    Your only option I think is to delete old and unnecessary files from drive C.
    Is your anti-virus installed in partition C?If so,you may delete the backup it stores of quarantined files.This is how to:-
    • Disable the anti-virus first.
    • Go to program files on C.
    • Double click on your anti-virus name from the list of files.
    • Double click on backup.
    • Highlight all of the files and press delete.
    Hope this helps.Thanks!

    Less than 15% of available space on "H"drive on HP dv9000 laptop

    Windows may have filled your H:Drive with System Restore Points.

    By Default, Windows will save your System Restore Files on both Partitions of your Hard Drive. Right Click on My Computer and click Properties. (Or go to Control Panel and double-click the System icon)

    Click the System Restore Tab at the top of the Window that pops up. In that box in the middle should be a listing of the C: and H: Drive. Click the H: Drive to highlight it and Click the Settings button.


    On the next Window click the box that says: Turn off System Restore for this Drive. This will stop putting System Restore points on the H:Drive and it will also remove the System Restore Points already saved to the H:Drive.


    Click Start and then right click Computer and click Properties. Or in the Start menu, click Control Panel, and on the left hand side click Classic View. Then double click the System icon and on the left hand side again, click Advance System Settings.

    Click the System Protection tab at the top of the box. The uncheck the box beside the H:Drive in the box under Automatic Restore Points.

    If Windows tried to perform an automatic backup:

    The Recovery Files should be hidden on your recovery partition H:. At the top of the screen in the H:Drive click Tools > Folder Options

    Click the View Tab and go down the list of Advance Options and clcik in the circle to "Show Hidden Files and Folders"

    If you computer used the WIndows Backup and Restore to backup files, look for a Folder Named PC-"Your WIndows User Name", with the name of your Windows Login after the PC-

    If you don't see that folder, don't delete anything else.

    If you do see that folder you can delete it You can open that folder and see the files that were stored. That is the backup Windows created and by default the Windows Back Up and Restore program likes to choose the first partition that is not the C:Windows partition. Do Not Delete anything else.

    You can go to your Program Files in the Start Menu and go to the Windows Backup and Restore and in the options change the backup location to somewhere else, or turn off the automatic backup feature.

    Don't use the partition set aside for the recovery for anything else or save data there.
