Serious Hard Disc Problem
« on: July 06, 2005, 01:20:03 PM »
Hi,
one of my HD's which is a 20gb slave drive, registers at the bios screen, but i cannot see it in window explorer? it can be seen in  admin tools > computer management > storage, on on disc 1 - only it doesnt seem to specify a file system? so when i assign it a drive letter, when i go to WinExplorer this time, i see the new assigned drive - only it says that this drive is not formatted? ??? i really hope someone can help!

all advice most welcome!
