    Hi all

    Just gone into settings on my PC, Everything is correct i.e CPU, RAM and SSD etc, But it doesn't show me the Hard Drive on there, Ive plugged the Data and Power cables in but still nothing...

    This may not be the issue but as I'm sat here now I remember I have one of the power cables from my PSU going to the SSD and one of the other power cables connected to the Hard Drive, These power cables are 3 attached to the same lead on PSU, could that be the issue

    Cheers

    Have you gone into Disk Management.

    If not you need to right click on the drive an assign a new volume for it to show in Windows

    I think I done it correctly, When I go into System settings (Storage) it shows: New volume 931gb

    Does the drive have a drive letter assigned to it? Right click the new volume and go to drive letters and paths

    It has: New Volume (D:)

    When right clicked it doesn't say drive letters and paths

    On settings/New Volume/Sharing it says Network path: Not shared
