Missing Drive


New Member
My F: drive has disappeared.

When I go into This PC it is not there.

When I try to receive a file (e.g. a Word file) I get an error message that it cannot retrieve the file because the F: drive is missing.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Hello Neemobeer,

Sorry but you are talking to a novice here.

I have looked on disk management and no it doesn't.

No idea where I find firmware menu - sorry

Firmware as in BIOS or UEFI accessed while the computer first boots up before the operating system loads.


Go to Disk Management, click “Action” on the toolbar and then select “Rescan disks” to let system perform a re-identification for all connected disks. See if the F drive will appear after that.
