    Been using CloneDrive for years with no problem
    Suddenly the virtual drive won't show up
    Uninstalled and re installed as admin
    Still not showing up
    Any ideas

    Is the driver running (no warning sign)? Check in Windows device manafer.
    Is it enabled (at least one drive)? Check VCD preferences.
    Does it have a drive letter assigned? Check in Windows storage manager.

    This is from Device manager

    It is enabled
    Does not show in storage manager

    Please try to uninstall VCD and reboot. Now install it again.
    Which OS version is this?

    EDIT: Or even better, delete the device from device manager. When asked, if you want to delete the driver for this device, answer yes.

    OS Win10
    Tried deleting, removing from device manager, rebooting, re installing
    Still cannot get a virtual drive
    Does CloneDrive rely on vds.exe (Virtual Disk) service?

    Problem solved
    Finally tried simple approach
    Went to devices and printers and let the troubleshooter fix the corrupted drivers.
    Everything appears to be back to normal
