....
Did you delete a shortcut to it? It's pretty hard to actually make the drive itself disappear. If it did, try restarting the computer and see if it's recognized again.

Hey, I'd be glad to try and help you. This is very rare, and very difficult to do by mistake.

Can you tell us what operating system you have?

If he hasn't figured it out by now... that would be terrible.

Perhaps he should not have chosen such a prophetic screen name.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

I think you'd need a time machine.

Let's just hope he removed it from his device manager and "Tried turning it off and on again" :D
