Secondary Hard Drives or SSD Not Showing Up

If you've performed an installation of Windows yourself, or have recently needed to format a drive or install a new drive - you may find that your secondary drives do not appear.

1. Please search in the Start Menu for 'Disk Management', or right click directly on the Start Menu and select this option.
2. If you are automatically prompted with a wizard to 'Initialize disks' please click the next buttons to complete this prerequisite step.
3. Once completed, you will need to right click on any present black bars located in the bottom half of the management window, and to use the 'New simple volume' option.
4. Choose your partition size, name and drive letter if you wished for them to be customized, or you may leave the default options and simply press next to complete the process.
