    I was trying (and failed) earlier to do a Restore mainly because my mouse wouldn't behave after doing the sfc /scannow. That thankfully was sorted with the DISM routine.

    Ah, sorry KritzX, about not answering re disk management. Yes, been there. No the external drive is not visible there. Weird when it can be seen under the 'safely remove hardware and eject media'.

    I bought a new external hard drive, 2tb, as the other was only 500mb anyway. But 'My PC' cannot see that either.
