    Hard Drives Gone in My Computer?

    All my mapped drives are showing, but the physical drives themselves (like "C") are showing in My Computer.

    I checked the settings [I think!} and see nothing wrong. I tried resetting the folder to default view...nada.

    How do I get these back?

    You need to explain the problem further. Basically, you're saying that all drives are visible although I think you mean that C and D, etc, are not visible.

    Are you running Windows 7? What are the mapped drives? Have you mistakenly "hidden" the drives? Are the visible in Disk Management (right-click My Computer, choose Manage)?

    All my drives that are partitions assigned letters are "gone." My flash drive shows, my CD drive shows, mapped dirves [drive letters assigned to folders] show, but not any partition drives -- including my "C" [system] drive.

    I get that it's got to be some setting I clickewd somewhere, but I cannot find it -- I tried resetting everything to "default" but that doesn't work!

    Guys, I'm sorry...

    I had the group with those drive letters collapsed!

    Getting old, getting old...sigh...
