I stupidly disabled one of my drives in disk management. How can I enable it?

It doesn't even show up in disk management. As soon as I clicked disable, the whole drive disappeared.

In the device manager have you tried scan for hardware changes. What if you put the drive in another SATA port?

Nothing shows up in device manager when I scan for new. I'm trying the other SATA port now. Great idea.

Thanks for your help.

Changing SATA ports did the trick.

Glad that worked out, Wonder why it wouldn't come back in the first place though.
