I have been using my 1TB hard drive and decided to upgrade to my new SSD. I formatted my HD and installed windows 7 on my SSD. After the installation, I don't see my 1TB HD on my computer anymore, I wanted to use it as an extra space to store other programs. I went to the BIOS, disk management, and device manager and the computer knows that I have the 1TB HD plugged in, but I don't see it under my computer or as a drive. Could someone help me please? Thank you!

Have a look in Disk Management to see if it just needs a drive letter assigning to it:
