Hi all

I am running XPPro and Nortons Sytem works V5 . After a recent failed SP1 for XPP install, I had to reinstall System works.
Before the crash I was able to restore deleted files on A: C: and D: drives, but now do not have access to A: drive
i.e . Open Systemworks, select Nortons Utilities (6.03.36) , select Find & Fix Problem,select Unerase Wizard select Find any recoverable files, *.* for file names & then select the drive to search. The A: drive does not show here any more.
All that is available is Desktop, My Computer, Shared Docs folder, C: & D:
Do any of you clever and erudite people out there have any ideas to resolve this for me.

Is your A: avaliable in windows itself?

Yes, indeed it is
I'm wondering if it is something to do with the XP user profiles but this does not seem to be the case as I can log on with administrator, user or guest rights and it seems to make know difference.
Maybe I need to talk to Symantec

Either that, or check out their Knowledge Database on their website

HI Happy Harry,

just droping you a note,

I am running Win Xp PRO with SP 1. I have the same version of Norton Utilities. There are no devices with removable storage to select from. ie A: etc in unerase wizard.

So saying this I do not believe this to be related to the failed SP 1 install or users profiles as i am currently logged in as Admin.

Will look into later on tonight.
