My HD has 3 partitions - C;D and E. recently the D partition has failed to respond to Windows Explorer - if I click on D I get a message stating that the Drive requires formatting - to which I say NO!
In Computer Management / Disk Management the Drive is recognised in Disc 1 with 73GB and as 'healthy active'.
I have a back up of the Drive using Acronis True Image and the files are all there (having looked at them).
Te query is, how should I get the D partition back to good health; should I reformat it? If so, how do i do that?
Would like your help please

Geoff

If that drive doesn't have windows on it I think you can just right click on the drive and choose format?
