  1. THANK YOU!!, I was able to see the HDD in the device manager and not in the disks area. I forgot that since my disks are new I needed to format it haha.

  2. This will also format whatever drive you do this too. Do not do this if you have data you need.

  3. What if the New Simple Volume option is greyed out. I am an Administrator but I can’t seem to get this to work
