This patch is designed to detect password-protected secondary hard disk after resume/wake from sleep/hibernate.

Password-protected secondary hard disk is not shown in My Computer but can be seen in Device Manager the first time it is attached to the computer. This is by-design.
But after putting the system to sleep, the secondary hard disk must be detected in My Computer upon system resume.
