    Type disk management in the search bar, hit enter, take a screen shot of your drives and partitions and post it here (not sure how, never have done here). If the partition with your games still exists and does not have a drive letter assigned to it just right click and assign a letter. If however you accidentally formatted it then you are in deep doodoo.

    Never used tinypic. to be honest I don't post many pics online. As for getting the screenshot, not problem there.

    You stated that your 2nd partition is now 100mb which leads me to believe you viewed that from Disk Management? Also, what do you mean invisible? If you see a partition without a drive letter in disk management then I would agree with Dolorous Edd, you simply have to assign a drive letter. Unless you deleted partitions when you reinstalled w7 and that is bad news.

    Using disk management from within windows would be so much easier. If the partition is there, it's a matter of right click and assign drive letter. His post is not detailed enough though, so unless we get more info, it would be a guessing game.

    Yes you can do that using cmd while in windows but using disk management would be easier both visually and without the need for commands.
