    Well it was associated with the letter G before and I could see them, I switched it back to F, because that's what it was prior formatting. So I guess if they would disappear again if I do so. That's odd.

    Couple of cool little utilities. DriveCleanup might fix the issue so you can go back to D,E,F

    Drive Tools for Windows
    DriveCleanup V1.4
    Tools für Windows
    Device Cleanup Tool V0.7.1

    Edit: Be careful with Device Cleanup, it could remove something you don't want removed (like WAN Miniport stuff, if they aren't active)

    I found out that if I reboot my computer, my drives disappears. But if I change the letter, the second I do it they come back. I'll try to run Drive Tools and see if it fixes the issue.

    EDIT: Drive Tools didn't help, they still won't show up until I change a letter of one of my drives.

    I'm wondering if one of the partitions/volumes (F probably) has got the Hidden Attribute Set. I would reboot so that they disappear and are D,E,F .... then use diskpart to check the volume atrributes.

    Open a Command Prompt as Admin
    list volume
    select volume # - Replace # with the volume letter
    attributes volume - List volume attributes (Read-only : No, Hidden : No, No Default Drive Letter: No, Shadow Copy : No)
    attributes volume clear hidden - Clear hidden attribute on volume (if you find one)
    exit - leave diskpart

    MiniTool Patition Wizard can do this also and is great for managing partitions.

    I did "attributes volume" on all my volumes and all of them reported "No" to everything except my System reserved that said "Yes" to No default Drive Letter.

    Well that's how it is with computers. Trials and errors until we figure out what's wrong. Thanks for all the ideas so far.

    If that's a Western Digital HDD, there is some info that might be applicable half way down the page ... Drive Letter Disappears after Reboot.

    It's not actually missing, it just won't show in modern apps lol. I can assign whatever letter I want, it just won't show up in "Storage" modern app after I reboot my computer
