Default Unrecognised Hard Drive

Hi Guys,

I'm starting to tear me hair out about my SATA hard drive. Since reinstalling windows on my computer my second hard drive is not being recognised and is unusable. When i go into the device mamager it says that it is working properly, however when i go into my computer the hard drive is not there and i can't access it.

Can any of you help please. I'm at a los as to why this is happeneing.

Thanks

Richard

Cpanel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk management. That's how to go.

But, it would have managed you to format it. Glad it's sorted out.
