I had an internet problem with windows 7 ultimate 64bit, so i decided to format it. I had one windows drive (SAMSUNG 250GB) and one storage drive (HITACHI 1TB) which has 900GB of important data on it. I chose custom installation onto my old windows drive (samsung) and it installed with no problems. I didn't touch my other drive. now, i can't see my 1tb storage drive in computers or in drive manager, but i can still see it in device manager! What should i do?? i really don't want to format it, but if the data is gone then i will have to.
you should see the 1tb drive there, ensure it has a drive letter that is not inuse by another device (e.g. card reader or pen drive) and if it is, change either the conflicting device or the 1tb's letter to something else.
