I installed a new motherboard and cpu running Windows 10. My two SDD drives and CD-ROM all run fine but my HDD shows up but no drive name and wants me to format the drive to name it. I have a lot of stuff on there I do not want to lose as I used it to store things like my music library where high speed access is not needed. Shows up in Disk Manager and Device Manager. Made sure drivers are current as well. Disk Manager shows it as healthy but no data.

Old system is fried hence the new motherboard and cpu. No backup, not critical just pain in the but to restore. Lot of music.

Power surge is my best guess. Disk Management shows it being fine just needs to be remapped which requires formatting. I had this problem before when I put the drive in the old PC and ended up starting over and was hoping to avoid doing it again.
