    1)From the above mentioned details, i came to know that, one of your Empty file system is not showing in windows explorer isn’t it?
    2)Ok then, follow these below steps to get back the lost file system from windows explorer
    3)Go to windows explorer → click on organize button from the top right corner → Select view
    4)In view,UnCheck for the box where it says → “Hide empty drives in the computer folder”
    Note:By technically, My computer is also called a folder!
    5)Finally, click on Apply → OK
    That’s it over, Now your file system now show on your windows explorer!
