    Sure :))

    Check the 3rd pic in this post once ,
    >>The Drive which is hidden will be shown empty 'Ltr ' respective to 'Volume ###'

    As i hidden drive E in the pic >> Volume 3 is showing Empty Ltr ,
    So check clearly about which Volume ### is Matching with which D in your system .

    For example , Volume 4 is for D in ur pc >>
    type " select volume 4 " and press ' Enter '

    & then type " assign letter D " and again press ' Enter '

    Now Go to your My computer and You will find Drive E as UnHidden :))
