Writing 'lost partition' to MBR

So I reformatted my computer, and windows cannot find the partition on one of my backup drives. I used "Partition Find and Mount" to locate the partition, and I have access to the files so i know it is still there, but I need to get rid of this unformatted "e" drive that is my backup drive and make windows understand that yes, there is an ntfs partition on that harddrive.

How do I do that? (my google fu failed me)

    See if diskmgmt.msc will still handle it. It's the same utility for XP, Vista and 7 (though the latter has more features).

    I don't believe it - I'm on my THIRD PS3, and my FIRST XBOX360. What the heck?
