i have a problem , i just bought this new pc , now when i plug in my ext 1.5tb HDD via sata cable (esata) into the back of the pc it detects the hdd while the pc is booting up, i can see its listed there , but then when the pc is ready the hdd cant be seen anywhere at all, now i went to disc management and i can see my main hdd (c drive) but underneath it there is no listing of the ext hdd , in the left column its says disc 1 dynamic when i right click it there is no option to select drive letter or anything like that, it says convert to basic. the drive has stuff on it so formatting it is a last resort, is is currrently formatted as NTFS . is there a setting somewhere that isnt enabled ? where do i go to check if this is the case ?
let me know if you require anymore info. i am not a pro at this.
