1TB hard drive not seen by my computer
Hello. I was given a useless HD, a 1 TBs, 3.5", in a Seagate enclosure. Using Gparted, I was able to "see" it and format it. I looks healthy in Gparted, the whole frame is in green and readable still in Gparted.
Now the bone ! When I connect it to my W-8 Machine, My Computer does not see it at all, if I go to Control Panel, Computer Management then Disk Management, it is shown in total, 931.51 GBs, but is labelled unallocated and there is nothing I can do with it. When I right-click on it, the menu that comes up is greyed out.
Is this a size problem, would I be able to use it if I were to partition it into smaller size ?
The USB enclosure is fine, I have slipped in a 500 GBs HD and it works fine but still I would like to use the 1 TBs one . Have a great day. Jean.
