3. Select Drive from lower half of your DMI which doesn’t have any drive letter.

4. Right Click; Select “Change Drive Letter and Paths” from the context menu.

5. Now click on the Add button in the next menu and pick a drive letter from the pull down menu.

6. Click ok to assign selected drive letter and check your windows explorer or my computer to confirm missing drive of windows XP or Vista is shown.
