No hard disks in Disk Management

Recommended Posts

No storage media apart from opticail drives appear in Disk Management.

Hard drives appear in my computer but not usb pen drive.

Every thing appears in device manager.

I use pen drive a lot.

What can i do?

Well, that's incredibly odd. You can't even see your regular hard drives. Did you install anything or update anything recently that would have installed a filter driver (like antivirus or virtual drive software), or modify the source with nlite?

It's sort of a new install. 2 or 3 weeks old with no problems. I just uninstalled slysoft Virtual CloneDrive and some other stuff. Didn't help. I just tried starting windows in safe mode. Same problem.

:wacko:

Have these partitions been "hidden"? (If so, here we go!)

I don't think is hidden partition. I booted the PC with the old hard drive and the disk management could see all the drives. While it was working i ran 2 antivirus and Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. The removal tool found something and removed it but it didn't fix the problem. And now when I search for something on google the links sometimes send me to http://maybeask.info/search.php and other sites I didn't want. I think its time to reinstall windows.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here... you must have gotten a baaad thing installed that scrodd you.

Try an Upgrade Install (i.e. "Install Over Top" - you'll find instructions on that) and pray...

I'd be interested to see how Diskpart or PartInfo views the drives.

I did it!!!!! I lost 8 hours of my precious time, but I did it!!!!!

So, what was it? drumroll............ A virus!

I checked with my Avira Antivirus, nothing. Zonealarm, nothing. Some other free antivirus programs, nothing. I've tried ANYTHING that I could from Paragon Hard Disk Manager and Norton Partition Magic, fdisk etc but it only got worse. I *almost* lost my precious files.

So what fixed it? SuperAntispyware program, which I stumbled on accidentely!

The **** virus was called Rootkit.Agent and it was hidden behind drivers/services or something like that.
