I'm unable to locate E Drive in Windows 10 in Envy Desktop PC

Hi

E: drive is sometimes hidden because it contains the Recovery Software.

 

A good Partition Manager  may show/unhide it.

 

BUT if it is the Recovery area and it is altered then it may not function.

 

Is there a need or reason to access E:  ?

I'm unable to locate E Drive in Windows 10 in Envy Desktop PC

I apologize for not being computer savvy.  I've read the responses and don't understand them.  In Windows 7 I was able to back up files on a drive called E drive.  When I tried to back up a file on my new computer, there was only D drive, and there was no other option other than to back up on the desk top, where it is now.  I went into file management and changed the letter D to E and then tried to back up the file.  I could tell it was attempting to back up in the CD/DVD tray, but I kept getting the message that there was no disc.  I changed the type of disc more than once, and I continued to get the message.  When I go into File Explorer, it only shows E drive (DVD) (since I changed D to E).  I've searched for help on my computer every way I can find, and nothing has helped.  Again, I'm not very knowledgeable with computer terminology.

@woophily,

You have to forget WIN 7 logic.  Put the drive letters back to original.

There is an unused 2TB (2000 GB) hard drive in that unit.

In answer to your question, my Product #  is 7BB48AV.  I will put the drive letters back to D from E that I made the change to.  I don't understand what you mean by having "an unused 2TB (2000 GB) hard drive in that unit."  Also, I still need to know how to back up a document, i.e. from my Quicken program. 

Thanks.
