I recently upgraded to a SSD. I used to run a 1tb HDD for windows and anything else. When I reinstalled windows onto the SSD I wiped the old HDD and then had it unplugged during the windows 10 install on the SSD. Ever since then the HDD does not show up in file explorer. I also tried a hard drive reader and that never sees it. However if I go into device manager and look at the drives section. I can see both the SSD and HDD, has anyone ever seen something like this before and knows how to fix it? For anyone questioning I plan to use the old HDD as extra storage as I have many games.

disk management?
windows 10 storage spaecs?
In disk management, the top half of the page does not show it(the part giving you percentage free and volume in a vertical list). However if I look at the bottom half of disk management(the part showing which partitions and how much unallocated space) does see it. I can all other disks on both sections of disk management. Except that drive which only shows up on 1 section. Hopefully that makes sense.
