I installed two phisical drives in my desktop one SSD and one hdd. I divided my single hard drive into three volumes(partitions). On Windows, they all worked perfectly. One volume vanished after I installed Manjaro on my desktop. The other two volumes are operational. One of them had a ‘can’t mount’ problem that has now been resolved. Please assist me in restoring that ‘E’ local disc.
Linux != Windows, so there are no
Please see for a better eexplanaation:
Hope it helps!
Can Windows see them all?
I suppose yes, because:
Or do you solely rely on Linux now?
I hope you took care not to install to this drive?

I can see all the drives in window.
I now solely rely on linux now.
I took care - Manjaro is installed in a separate SSD, not on my hard disc.

Perhaps also provide
as it shows more information similar to
Can you identify which is which from the output?
Which are present and which is missing?
I’m not familiar with “
SFS” as a filesystem (from the
fdisk -l output)
I found these when briefly looking:
Perhaps that can give you a clue what might have happened? I don’t know.
There are only
2 drives connected to the computer.
If there are more in the computer, as you say, I suspect a faulty connection of whatever sort.
Oh , yes I have only 2 phisical drives. A partition from one of the drive is missing… sorry…
Can you tell us
perhaps even based upon what output you already provided
and/or also based upon
on which drive the missing partition is supposed to be?
Depending on what one looks at, there are 3 partitions
or 8 partitions
Which drive is it missing from?

may be it is sdb3.
The missing volume had low storage allocated than sdb5. as far as I remember
Try this instead.

Would those last messages explain why no file system is shown for two partitions? Would that be related to the present issue?
I think so.
In windows I extended its size multiple times and it’s volume letter will be repeated many times in windows’s Disk Manager ( I think it broken into many pieces on the disk).
It’s looked like this but repeated more than that:
this screenshot is found on the internet
Could this be the cause?
It can be.
Another possibility would be the drive starting to fail, producing bad blocks at partition extremities.
