    local disk unlabelled volume


    I am running windows 7 ultimate on my desktop. Surprising when i open "My Computer" All the disk are showing as unlabelled volume.
    What should i do to get back my disks as Local disk(C) or Local Disk (D) etc.
    I have found some viruses and deleted those.

    Thank You

    A screenshot of disk management would help:

    Did you give it a name anytime before to distinguish that hard drive from another if you have more than one drive installed. It is normal to not have a label on a Hard drive.

    I read the complaint as they didn't even have a drive letter. A screenshot of Disk Management will help use see what's actually wrong.

    Disk management will not do anything other than show the drive letter assigned to the UUID. The volume really does not require a name assigned to it, since all OS's ignore that information.

    Precisely. The OP seems to be saying there is no drive letter for any of the drives after the viruses/malware had their way. Disk Management will show what's become of the drives.

    True, but if they did not properly remove the malware, still Disk Management is a moot point. Regardless of what they see in there, it is pulling from Diskpart in the backend. Most users will not understand what Disk Management is really for and just see it as a way to see which drives and the partitions on them and nothing more.

    I have Labels on all my HDDs and Disk Management does show that name, such labeling goes back aways, I first used it with MS-DOS 5 in '92. If there is no drive letter assigned the HDDs, and ODDs, usually won't show in File Explorer.

    Here's the deal... We don't have enough information from the OP and they are likely to not come back and give us anything more.
