While creating raid 10 on my PC a power fluctuation caused it to restart while loading the W-7 OS. Now it will won't show any of them connected but 2 of them show up in the device manager. It says they need to be initialized but I don't know how. Can anybody help me?
 
Hi there ohstevie,

What HDDs do you have and which ones do you really see in Device Manager? Also, it may be a good idea to check whether they are recognized in Disk Management.
Apart from that, after successfully creating a RAID 10, you should see it as one HDD. So, my suggestion would be to initialize the drives(this is a data destructive process but I assume that you have nothing on the drives) and try to rebuild the RAID.

Hope this will help,
