Used this program. Had to do re-format C drive due to virus/malware attack. The D drive was visible so didn't think about it. After reinstalling of XP on C drive, volume on D drive is closed and cannot seem to open without a password. The problem is not sure what password was, tried every concievable one we might have used, but to no availability. The properties shows volume at 3GB size.

I recommend changing the drive letter of the volume that's inaccessible. To do this, go to Control Panel and search for Administrative Tools. Start Computer Management > Disk management. Locate the partition, right click it and select Change drive and letters. Choose another letter and apply the updates. Reboot the computer and the drive should be available without a password.
