My spare drive has been marked as system RRS feed

  • Question

  • have a problem, because my spare drive with D partition has been marked by system as "system" partition. On this drive are only my personal data no any system files or boot entries it isn't even active. This is big problem for me because this D partition works as backup for system images, and now I can't choose it during backup procedure (windows 7 built in backup). Can anyone help me?

  • Click Start, input Disk Management in the search box, press ENTER to open the Disk Management.

    See the Volume you have, What's the status of your D drive?

    Where did you find the D partition marked as "system" partition? Could you provide us with a screenshot?

    Do you have some system files in D drive? Or did you put the Desktop on your D drive?

    Check the computer for more details.
