I have a custom built pc with 2 hard drives of which the first one is the master and is 64gb ssd.It is partitioned with my os and recovery and almost full and problem is that my second hard drive of 2tb has no drive letter and I can't seem to initialise it.It does not show up in my bios and seeing as it is healthy and shows up in my device management and I only know the basics I am stumped as to how to initialise it.Any help would be appreciated,thanks.

I installed Windows myself yes but did'nt check my disks first and so have a ssd 64gb with my os and recovery together partitioned and a redundant 2tb that I can't initialise.Sorry for the time i'm taking up but as I said I only know basics and appreciate your patience.

Can you show us a Screenshot of what you have?

Go into Disc Management and maximise the Window.

Press Alt PrtScrn. To copy your screen to the clipboard.

Start Search Paint. Run Paint.

Paste.

Save As anything.jpg

Go to imageshack.us and browse to the file you just saved and upload it.

Copy and paste the link you get back here.
