Firstly, thanks to Tom's for being a very useful resource when I recently built my first PC. All went well except:
I have a C drive SSD and have just connected some additional hard drives for extra storage.
These are brand new unformatted, unpartitioned hard drives.
In disk management (Windows 7) I right click any of these new disks where it says 'unallocated', but the 'new simple volume option' is not available (greyed out). The only selectable options are Properties and Help.
I can't find an answer to this on the Internet.
Any help is genuinely appreciated as i have lost my Sunday to this so far :- )
