I recently installed my Windows on a new SSD and noticed my HDD is unallocated. I know little about PCs so I need some help. I want to use this Hard Drive to store music, videos, games, other softwares, etc. How can I make it available? The only options I have when right-clicking are: New Simple Volume on the "bar" and Convert to Dynamic Disk Convert to GPT Disk on the space where it says Disk 1 also they both have Options and Help.
I tried to go through the Simple Volume installation but I am worried I will do something wrong when I get to the Format Partition. What do the options on the Format Partition mean?

Create New Simple Volume. Format to NTFS file-system.
In order to use a hard drive that comes in a raw unallocated state you have to partition it , then format it (NTFS) and give it a drive letter.
