Hard drive issues Tags: Hard Drives Disk Management Storage Last response: July 7, 2012 5:56 PM in Storage Share shail12ja July 7, 2012 5:47:33 PM I just bought and installed a Seagate 2TB Internal Hard Drive, installation went fine and everything, boot menu recognizes it, Disk Management recognizes it, but My Computer doesn't. Disk Management is telling me that the hard drive is Unallocated, Online, and working correctly. When I right click on it though, I cannot format it, there's simply no option to do so. The hard drive will just be for storage... So my question is, how do I format it and get it ready to use. I thought it would just be a plug and play, but obviously I was way wrong.

Create a new partition and format it as NTFS. then it will be assigned a drive letter. m 0 l shail12ja July 7, 2012 5:53:46 PM Where in the Disk Management Tool? I see no options that will allow me to partition it, which is where I'm having the issue. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer shail12ja July 7, 2012 5:56:36 PM Ok, I found it now... Apparently you get different options when you right click on the drive itself. Thank you for your help Nhasian. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
