Hi,
I changed PSU and I see that my secondary disk (Samsung HDD) is gone.
The new things is that I have some system reserved disk.
AND when I click properties>hardware on any of the two (either my main SSD or that system reserved disk), I can see that both my main Adata SSD and secondary Samsung HDD is showing there:


So this means that PC detects my Samsung HDD, but does not display in my computer view for me to navigate it?
How come?

One difference I noticed that on old PSU I had 2 separate SATA cables.
This new PSU says it has 3 sata, but all 3 of them are on 1 cable.
Might this be the issue (connecting both disks on one cable somehow makes me not to see the second disk?)

Moderator note: Moving thread from Systems to Storage.

Have you been creating partitions and assigning drive letters?
No, I did nothing at all.

With my previous PSU, I simply connected the secondary HDD through SATA and it appeared in "my computer" interface.

Now when I changed the PSU, it is gone from "my computer" interface :(

You say I should assign the letters somehow?

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

Especially the motherboard and PSU.

When you changed the PSU did you use any cables from the old PSU?

What is the capacity of that Samsung drive?
