Try this 1.

Check in the "Disk Management".

Click on Start --> In search bar, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter.

"Disk Management" window will be opened. If you notice a partition without a

drive letter then right-click on it --> Select "Change Drive Letter and Paths..." -->

Click on "Add" button --> Add --> Select the drive letter --> Click on OK.

Good Luck
thanks a ton
