    Default This Seems Impossible

    I thought my computer was dying but I had a look this arvo,

    This Seems Impossible

    The power plug on of the harddrives had fallen out.

    But "My Computer' still showed 3 drives
    I have 2 physical hard drives
    1 is partitioned into primary partition c:
    The remainder should be d:
    and the other drive should be drive e:

    but all 3 drives functioned from "My Computer" despite the power cable being disconnected.
    so I disconnected the data cable.

    "My Computer" still shows 3 drives and I can access each of them.

    If I plug the data & power cable back into the 2nd physical drive I can acess e: drive, but I can't access drive d:, I get the message d: is not formatted.



    It seems e: has been mirrored into d: but it still shows as a separate drive in "my computer"

    any explanations what's happening

    and how do I save data?

    Not all of what you're saying makes sense, so let's go back a step. From the the Disk Management MMC snap-in (right-click My Computer -> Manage, select Disk Management) what Physical and logical drives do you see? Perhaps post a screen shot.

    Here is a screen shot.
    Only 1 physical partitioned drive is connected

    and the only physical drive is formatted fat32
