Hi,

I recently did a fresh install of WIndows 10 Pro on my ALienware 17 R3. I have a Samsung PM951 NVMe SSD for (boot) + 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s, as well, for secondary storage.
My secondary hard drive D:, is now no longer appearing on my computer in File Explorer however it is showing up when I open up the Intel Rapid Storage Technology program. . I remember adding the drive D:, to be backed up before I did the fresh install of Windows 10 to my external USB storage via the Windows 10 'File History' route.

Does anyone know what might be the cause of this or what I may have done wrong?

Also rdg1101, the 'My Book' 3TB external USB drive that I had added the hard drive that is in question to via WIndows 10's' file history, now has the drive letter, 'D:' which is the drive letter that used to be assigned to my 1 TB 7200 RPM drive that is missing in File Explorer.
