    A week ago, I did a system restore on my primary hard drive. The computer restarted and windows was working fine. I clicked one of my desktop icons that had a path into my second hard drive. It said it couldn't find the specified path. So I looked into Disk Management and Device Manager, but my hard drive wasn't show. I restarted my computer and checked BIOS. BIOS recognized my secondary hard drive, so I'm confused as to why Vista doesn't. (Both drives are SATA.) I tried unplugging it and replugging it in, and one time the disk showed up as an unlabeled drive in Disk Management, but before I could give it's original label back, it disappeared from the list. Any info would help.
