  1. Windows 10 doesn't recognize my second hard disk


    Hello
    I was using a Linux distribution on my primary disk SSD and using a secondary disk HDD as data storage.
    Today I made a fresh install of Windows 10 on the primary disk replacing the Linux OS and moved all my data to the secondary disk.
    After installing Windows 10, it doesn't recognize the secondary disk.

    I've tried to reserach and follow the solutions for a few similar issues online, but it seems the status of my disk is not exactly as are most of what I find.

    This is how my Disk Management looks like in portuguese, but I'll translate:

    Windows 10 doesn't recognize my second hard disk 100e07f1-49ba-4a06-b174-56723488c9f5?upload=true.png


    The secondary disk in question is "Disco 1 Partição 1" Disk 1 Partition 1, i.e. the third line up in the upper part of the picture.
    On the lower part, it's "Disco 1" Disk 1.
    The remaining info says
    Disk 1
    Basic
    465.76 GB
    Online
    Good Working Status Primary Partition


    If I right-click on it, I get this:
    Windows 10 doesn't recognize my second hard disk 1bdaf750-2b6c-45ac-9b85-ba497535cfe0?upload=true.png
    The available options are:
    Convert in dynamic disk...
    Properties
    Help

    If I right-click on the partition on the upper part, I get these options:
    Windows 10 doesn't recognize my second hard disk 935d7d39-ad64-4c6c-84d5-1532fef5b4f1?upload=true.png
    of which the only available option is
    Delete volume...


    How can I get my secondary disk being recognized without losing data?
    Thanks

    :)

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?

  3. Windows 10 installation does not recognize second hard drive

    Hello Brian,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We regret the inconvenience caused and will assist you in resolving the issue.



    From the above description, I understand you are unable to detect the second hard drive on your computer after upgrading to Windows 10.



    If your computer was able to recognize the second hard disk before Windows 10 upgrade, there are chances of your current hard disk drives being incompatible with the upgraded operating system.



    Update the disk drivers manually from Device manager by following the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.



    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Device manager from the context menu.
    • Expand Disk drives, right click on the second hard disk and select
      Update driver software from the context menu.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions and wait for the update to complete.
    • After the update is complete, close the window and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
